This week, Governor Wolf visited the Almono-Hazelwood Mill 19 site and toured Hazelwood Business District in Pittsburgh. The Almono site is a massive revitalization project in the Hazelwood district that has been made possible with significant state support.

On Wednesday, Governor Wolf was in Erie to tour Logistics Plus, Inc., a supply chain management company that announced its plans last month to expand and create new jobs in the City of Erie.

Earlier this week, Governor Wolf announced that the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority had approved low-interest loans to support seven small business projects across the Commonwealth. On Thursday, the governor announced that COE Distributing will be expanding and consolidating its operations in Fayette County, a move that will create new jobs in the area.

On Tuesday, Governor Wolf urged the Trump administration to heed the recommendations of the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis. “The President’s commission has laid out a robust and reasonable plan for the federal government to be a better partner with states on combating the heroin and opioid crisis,” said Governor Wolf. “I urge President Trump to move swiftly to get these recommendations into action.”
