By: The Office of Governor Tom Wolf

February 14, 2018

This month, Governor Wolf continued making the case for #AmazonInPA, launched PA Business One-Stop Shop, and announced an ambitious $50 million workforce development plan and investments expected to create and retain more than 3,700 jobs across the commonwealth.

Governor Wolf also terminated Pittsburgh’s outdated status as a distressed municipality, making it the second city and the 14th municipality to exit the program.

One Step Closer to #AmazonInPA

Amazon named two Keystone cities — Pittsburgh and Philadelphia — as potential homes for its second headquarters, making Pennsylvania one of only two states to have more than one city under consideration.

Ensuring PA’s Workforce is Ready for 21st Century Jobs

This month, Governor Wolf outlined an ambitious plan to ensure Pennsylvania’s workforce has the skills and education to lead in today’s economy. The governor proposed a first-of-its-kind $50 million strategic investment in job training and the launch of PAsmart, a realignment of workforce development that focuses on 21st century job training spanning across K-12 education to apprenticeship programs.

Launching PA Business One-Stop Shop

Investing in Infrastructure and Community Development

Governor Wolf continued to invest in Pennsylvania communities with more than $74 million in water infrastructure projects and funding for 79 community development projects and 45 highway, pedestrian, and waterway projects.
