  • FILE - In this March 8, 2012 file photo Mayor Michael Nutter delivers his budget address to city council at City Hall in Philadelphia. Nutter testified in federal court on Tuesday, July 10, 2012, that the citys ban on outdoor feeding of the homeless in Philadelphias parks is part of a broader strategy to combat homelessness, not an attempt to hide them from a tourist area where many of the citys most popular museums are located. Four religious groups have challenged the ban, saying it infringes on their rights to freely assemble and practice their religion. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File)
