This week Governor Wolf continued his Jobs that Pay and Schools that Teach tours.

Governor Wolf hosted a press conference in Philadelphia to tout the recently announced $300 million investment in the Port of Philadelphia. The investment will help improve the Port’s infrastructure, increase capacity, and create thousands of jobs.

The Governor visited Central York High School on Monday to discuss his historic $640 million dollar investment in Pennsylvania’s education system.

Governor Wolf also highlighted the success of Medicaid expansion in Pennsylvania, specifically the almost 63,000 newly eligible Pennsylvanians who now have access to drug and alcohol treatment.

Fighting the opioid abuse epidemic plaguing Pennsylvania is a top priority for Governor Wolf and his administration. This week, the Wolf Administration released guidance for healthcare professionals to help get individuals who are suffering from substance use disorder into treatment through a process known as a warm handoff. First Lady Frances Wolf also joined Department of Human Services Secretary Ted Dallas on a tour of Community Hospital in the city of Chester and discussed the Wolf Administration’s efforts to battle the opioid crisis.

With the holiday season in full swing, Governor Wolf wishes all Pennsylvanian’s a happy holiday.
