[ 394 Pa. Page 144]

OPINION PER CURIAM.

The Insurance Commissioner of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania acting as a statutory liquidator of an insolvent insurance company is not a "public authority" within the meaning of the ordinance of the City of Pittsburgh which excludes "public authorities"; and hence a transfer of real estate made by him as the statutory liquidator is not excluded from taxation under that ordinance imposing a real estate transfer tax.

Disposition

Affirmed.
