HARRISBURG – House Majority Leader Rep. Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) issued the following statement regarding Governor Tom Wolf’s announcement to open certain segments of the economy and his veto of Senate Bill 613:

“House Republicans have carried the voices of millions of frustrated and worried Pennsylvanians throughout this pandemic. Pennsylvanians are rightfully frustrated their jobs are being cut or eliminated, that their children’s education has been canceled for the remainder of the academic year, and that their family-owned business are failing and their future is in jeopardy.

“For weeks we have urged Gov. Wolf to take action to allow segments of our economy to resume under publicly available safety policies. We are disappointed he vetoed a plan to allow him to provide a pathway to Pennsylvanians to get back to work safely and responsibly. However, we are encouraged to see him join us in moving towards helping some segments of our economy. Our members will continue to speak up for Pennsylvanians who feel silenced in this pandemic and we will continue to work tirelessly to help every Pennsylvanian recover and rebuild.”
