May 09, 2019

Harrisburg, PA — Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement commending Pennsylvania House leaders following their good joint appearance on the floor together to call for respect and civility:

“I commend Leaders Dermody and Cutler for their joint call for respect and civility. Yesterday’s shared message was an important reminder of the vital work ahead for state government. Further, it recalled the successes that we’ve had working together like protecting victims of domestic violence, battling the opioid epidemic and passing the first Clean Slate Law in the country.

“In the coming weeks, I look forward to working together to strengthen our workforce, reform our criminal justice system, lift people out of poverty, and invest in our schools. I believe there is room for bipartisan agreement on many issues and I join the leaders in aspiring to find common ground. In a time when too many are focused on advancing partisan politics, let’s remind everyone that Pennsylvania is focused on delivering for the people who we serve.”
