This week, the governor continued to hold bipartisan roundtable discussions in York, Monroe County, and Hazleton to discuss local and statewide efforts to lead the nation in combating the opioid abuse and heroin use epidemic. Fighting Pennsylvania’s opioid and heroin epidemic is a top priority for Governor Wolf and these roundtables and panels are an opportunity to work collaboratively with the General Assembly and community leaders to ensure Pennsylvania leads the nation in the fight to combat the opioid abuse and heroin use crisis.

The governor also announced that the Department of Corrections is saving more than $500,000 a year in transportation costs by temporarily relocating inmates receiving radiation treatment to a single facility. On Wednesday, the Governor gave a speech at the Keystone Crossroads conference that addressed the challenges that Pennsylvania’s older cities face.
