    Gov. Tom Wolf issued this statement Wednesday afternoon condemning the violence in Washington, D.C.: “Today, President Trump’s supporters attempted a coup. This was the direct result of a deliberate disinformation campaign by Republicans from the President down to legislators in Pennsylvania. They lied about the results of the election. They lied about voter fraud. They lied about my administration and other governors. They lied about the administration of the election here in Pennsylvania and across the country. On November 3, we had a remarkably well-run election despite historic challenges. “Eight of the nine Republican members of Congress from Pennsylvania lied...

    The usual solemn and joyous occasion that surrounds the Swearing-in Ceremony in the Pennsylvania Senate was anything but on Tuesday. The raucous session began with a dispute over mask wearing that led to the passage of a temporary rule proposed by Senate Democrats to mandate everyone in the chamber have a face covering, which a couple Republican Sens. John DiSanto of Dauphin County and Doug Mastriano of Franklin County had resisted wearing until that point. But that was only a precursor to the real fireworks that the Senate Democrats set off. Pa.

  • PA Governor Tom Wolf Setting A Trap For #PA Restaurants?

    The State of Pennsylvania has announced that restaurants will be able to open their doors once again for indoor dining as of today Monday, January 4th. There is one catch, though. The permissible indoor capacity depends on whether or not the establishment has been “self-certified.” Caution business owners– stay where you are – this is a trap. According to Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Secretary Dennis Davin restaurants may reopen at 50% capacity as of Monday at 8:00 a.m if they have completed the online self-certification process.
  • Federal stimulus package won’t erase PennDOT’s funding gap or plans for new tolls or taxes

    Congressional leaders passed a new stimulus package meant to alleviate the financial pain of the coronavirus, but it won’t cure all that ails PennDOT’s pocketbook. PennDOT press secretary Alexis Campbell said Monday afternoon it wasn’t clear if the relief plan will cover the $600 million funding gap plaguing PennDOT. Early media reports indicate that $10 billion of financial relief could be distributed to the 50 states’ highway systems, though it’s unclear how much would come Pennsylvania’s way. State Sen. Pat Browne, a Lehigh County Republican and longtime chairperson of the Appropriations Committee, said Tuesday that transportation-specific wording included in the...

    Come 8 a.m. Monday, restaurants and bars can reopen for indoor dining at a quarter or half of their occupancy. Bowling alleys, hair salons, museums and casinos can open their doors up to 50% capacity. And other in-person businesses can operate up to 75% capacity. Hearing that Gov.

Wolf said his decision to not extend those orders and returning to the ones in place as of Dec. 11 is based on...

    Gov. Tom Wolf announced Wednesday that he will lift some temporary restrictions on Pennsylvania businesses, including a suspension of indoor dining at restaurants, on Jan. 4. The news conference comes days before restrictions the governor has imposed on businesses are slated to expire. Wolf said those measures will indeed end on the scheduled expiration date of Jan. 4. Earlier this month, Wolf imposed temporary restrictions on businesses, including a three-week ban on indoor dining at restaurants. Wolf also has ordered the closure of entertainment venues, including casinos, theaters and concert halls. Retailers and most other businesses are restricted to 50%...

    More Pennsylvania restaurants are getting dinged for defying Gov. Tom Wolf’s COVID-19 mitigation orders. As part of its latest round of inspections, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture announced it has ordered 33 restaurants to close for allowing patrons to eat indoors.

Restaurants ordered to close include Denny’s Lennies Restaurant in Halifax, Villa...

    ROSS TOWNSHIP, Pennsylvania -- Seven years ago, combat veteran Jack Mook was a hard-nosed Pittsburgh detective who stumbled upon two young brothers who showed up intermittently at the boxing gym where he volunteered. The boys were living on the edge of despair: Their birth parents had failed them; their foster parents had failed them; and the system had failed them. The "home" the boys lived in was a rat's nest with dog feces, fleas and no beds. The oldest brother's hair was falling out in gobs, and his skin was filled with red blotches. The younger brother wept all of...

    Gov. Tom Wolf declined Monday to sign on to a multi-state program designed to impose a cap on greenhouse gas emissions from cars and trucks. The Transportation & Climate Initiative aims to reduce emissions but also carried the likelihood of higher gas prices at the pump in participating states. Other governors also opted against signing onto the initiative. But Wolf’s move isn’t necessarily a permanent rejection of the concept. “Governor Wolf is supportive of cap and invest programs as a cost-effective means to reduce pollution and recognizes transportation as the third highest category of CO2 emissions in Pennsylvania,” his office...

    A group of Pennsylvania bars and restaurants is taking legal action against Gov. Tom Wolf and Health Secretary Dr. over new coronavirus rules that will prohibit indoor dining during the holiday season. Co-counsels for the group filed a pair of court documents Friday, Troy Freedman, a lawyer for the businesses, told Fox News. One was a petition for review, a required first step when filing suit against state officials under Pennsylvania law, Freedman said. The other is seeking an injunction that would enjoin the governor from enforcing his order, which he issued last week. It went into effect on Dec....

The 66-vehicle pileup, including 55 trucks and 11 passenger vehicles, over a mile span on the westbound side of the highway happened around 3 p.m. Wednesday in Clinton County, State Police said Thursday.

    Pennsylvania, under the leadership of Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf (D), has threatened at least 150 restaurants with fines for operating after the governor again shut down indoor dining last week. Last week, Wolf announced a set of mitigation strategies to curb the spread of the Chinese coronavirus, which suspends indoor dining at “bars, restaurants, breweries, wineries, distilleries, social clubs, and private catered events” until January 4, 2021. The order also prohibits private gatherings of more than ten people, though it excludes places of worship. However, it urges churches, synagogues, and mosques to “find alternative methods.” Additionally, outdoor gatherings are capped...

    A record-run of COVID-19 deaths and research showing substantial virus spread in places such as restaurants and gyms are behind new restrictions aimed at slowing the disease which killed nearly 1,100 in the past week in Pennsylvania. “This surge is a completely different animal than we talked about this spring,” said Dr. Chris DeFlitch, an emergency room doctor at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. “The number of patients, the variety of patients, the number of patients who are at home positive, the number of patients that are in hospitals and ICU positive, is significant.” DeFlitch was among...

    Governor Tom Wolf says to close, but at least four restaurants are saying “no.” Taste of Sicily and Babe’s Grill House in Palmyra, along with Kuppy’s Diner in Middletown and Fenicci’s of Hershey have all publicly announced their intentions to remain open for indoor dining over the weekend. The Wolf administration unveiled new coronavirus restrictions on Dec. 10. The restrictions go into effect on Dec. 12 and include the closure of indoor dining. But some restaurant owners objected to the shutdown order and the short notice. Phil Guarno, owner of Fenicci’s of Hershey, said that because Governor Wolf’s office had...

    Despite a plea from Penn National Gaming to keep casinos open, Gov. Tom Wolf went ahead with his anticipated temporary shutdown announcement Thursday, saying no dice to the entertainment industry for the remainder of 2020 and into early 2021.

    Gov. Tom Wolf announced new steps Thursday to combat the surge in coronavirus cases, including measures to prohibit indoor dining in restaurants, the closure of casinos and theaters and a temporary halt to scholastic sports.

Gyms and fitness centers can offer outdoor classes but cannot offer indoor operations. Indoor gatherings are limited to 10 people, the governor’s office said, but churches and other houses of worship are exempt...
