On Monday, Governor Wolf sent a letter to Senator Pat Toomey to express his concerns about the impact federal health care cuts would have on Pennsylvanians.

Prior to President Trump’s announcement on the U.S. withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement, Governor Wolf released a statement urging the President to reconsider and warning of the negative impacts withdrawing from the agreement would have on Pennsylvania.
