This week, Governor Wolf continued his “Jobs that Pay” initiative by announcing investments and progress in job creation projects in Pennsylvania.

On Monday, the governor toured the Shell Cracker Plant site in Beaver County. The Shell project is expected to begin in 2017 and will create 6,000 full-time construction jobs and 600 full-time permanent positions. Governor Wolf also announced investment in the Steamfitters’ Butler Training Facility Project, which will train both unemployed and underemployed individuals for jobs in construction and energy industry. On Friday, Governor Wolf was in Johnstown to announce an investment in manufacturing at Gautier Steel, Ltd that will produce non-aerospace titanium for the United States Department of Defense.

Governor Wolf also signed the “Free the Six-Pack” legislation allowing beer distributors to sell six-packs and continuing liquor reform by improving customer convenience.

Following reports of religious intolerance and racism in Pennsylvania schools, Governor Wolf and his administration developed a response plan for schools to follow if they are faced with incidents of racism and bigotry. The plan includes outreach from the Pennsylvania Department of Education Office of Safe Schools, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, and the Pennsylvania State Police.
