LEMOYNE, Pa. — Pennsylvania State Grange believes that the May 19 veto by Governor Wolf of more business opening legislation is unfortunate. While appreciating his desire to defend his original business closure order, hopefully he will see that there is significant interest in getting PA’s economy and tax base back on track by safely following CDC guidelines. It is our hope that he will allow auto dealers and garden centers to reopen with CDC guidelines just as he did with Realtors a short time after his veto of the legislation that would have done the same thing.
Our fear is that these vetoes will poison the proverbial well as the Governor and the General Assembly begin to discuss State Budget enactment in June. Our Government’s actions in both branches have become extremely partisan and this is hurting all Pennsylvanians! Pennsylvania deserves a team working together, now more than ever, and that is not what we are seeing.
