Governor Tom Wolf will discuss the Wolf Administration’s efforts to ensure that personal protective equipment (PPE) is available and plentiful in Pennsylvania. He will highlight the work of the innovative and dedicated Pennsylvania business owners and workers who acted swiftly to help increase production and distribution of PPE in the commonwealth.
Governor Tom Wolf will call on the General Assembly to pass legislation to provide hazard pay for front-line workers. Front-line workers have continued working in essential industries throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, often at great risk to themselves. Hazard pay helps to compensate those employees for the additional risks they’ve taken on while performing essential work.
Governor Tom Wolf, Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman and Lehigh Valley NORML executive director Jeff Riedy will call for the legalization of adult-use cannabis. Legalization of adult-use cannabis will provide a new revenue stream to direct toward economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, enabling additional funding for grants for historically disadvantaged businesses. Legalization will also create more outlets for important restorative justice programs in the commonwealth.
Governor Tom Wolf will call on the General Assembly to pass legislation that will provide needed support to county election officials. These proposals, which provide for improvements to the mail-in ballot process and allow county election offices to process ballots more efficiently, will help Pennsylvanians vote safely and give county election officials the tools they need to count ballots and return elections results swiftly.
Governor Tom Wolf will urge the General Assembly to provide support for small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 Small Business Assistance Grant Program has successfully provided funding to many small businesses across the commonwealth to date, but additional support is needed to help businesses recover and strengthen Pennsylvania’s economy.
