Governor Wolf made it harder for domestic abusers to use firearms to kill, terrorize, and control their victims and others by signing Act 79 of 2018, which includes a reform long-sought by domestic violence and gun safety advocates.
Governor Wolf signed House Bill 1346 into law, now Act 78 of 2018, to protect the public by increasing the criminal penalties for using unmanned aircraft, often referred to as drones, to spy on or conduct surveillance of someone in a private place.
Governor Wolf was joined by labor and business leaders, including Microsoft, and several cabinet secretaries to launch the next phase of PAsmart, a first-of-its-kind $30 million investment in workforce development. During the press conference in York, the governor signed an executive order to cut red tape and improve coordination between several state agencies to more effectively deliver workforce development services to Pennsylvanians.
Governor Wolf signed House Bill 1641, codifying the Employment First policy that the governor established by executive order in March 2016 to increase competitive employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
