Wolf Vetoes Bills to Safely Reopen PA, House Attempts an Override


A day after Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed three bills aimed at safely reopening Pennsylvania, the House attempted an override vote on a bill that I co-sponsored. House Bill 2388 would allow vehicle dealerships, lawn and garden centers, cosmetology salons and barber shops, messenger services, animal grooming services and manufacturing operations to reopen. The vote was 115-87, 21 votes shy of the two-thirds majority needed for an override.

House Bill 2412, which I co-sponsored to help reopen real estate services in the Commonwealth, was also vetoed by the governor this week. But shortly after the veto was announced, the governor announced new guidance to allow real estate operations to resume statewide anyway. 

This is not the first time the governor has acted in response to actions of the House. The same occurred with the construction industry, online vehicle sales, reopening plans and more. We are helping to drive the agenda toward reopening and will continue to do so.

The third veto this week involved Senate Bill 327, which would have given county officials the ability to develop their own emergency mitigation plans for business.
