Pennsylvania is a State* &

I will be the first to argue that the Philly and Pittsburgh are very different economically, geographically and in lots of other ways that matter to this... but I suspect lawyers may not care as much about those distinctions and that they may see a precedent in this....   Thus the news out of Philly that a recent abitration ruling that police force will no longer have a residency rule out there could have implications here. Pittsburgh still has it's residency requirement and the local police union folks sure oppose it.  Could put a whole new spin on commuter tax debates.

* apologies to Illyrias for borrowing on a phrase.

& Yes yes... commonwealth.

Spin it as a positive: let them live where they want, then team up with Philly and go chase after a piece of their wage taxes in Harrisburg.

Given the parlous state of the city's pension obligations, I think the FOP would be a little more sensitive...
