Tom Wolf, who on Thursday announced an effort to address the financial struggles of Pennsylvania’s restaurants, bars and taverns during the COVID-19 pandemic.

HARRISBURG – The House today approved legislation, which includes a measure to create a statewide commerce court. Rep. Seth Grove (R-Dover), who authored the bill to create the business court, issued the following statement:
The citizens of the Commonwealth have been through so much over the past several months, from economic lockdown to struggling with receiving unemployment compensation from the Department of Labor and Industry. While Pennsylvania has been reopening, thanks to the work of House and senate Republicans, there are still two important pieces of COVID-19 policy the Legislature must address prior to the election: fraud and civil immunity. Currently in the House, House Bill 2352 is ready for action. This bill would create a state false claims act and provide civil immunity protections from COVID-19.

Like so many of you, I am frustrated and infuriated with Gov. Tom Wolf’s policies he formed unilaterally and without input of Pennsylvanians or the Legislature. Understandably, I have been asked why I have not signed the Declaration of Suspension, which falsely claims to be a tool to end the governor’s State of Emergency Declaration. Let be clear, it does not have any legal standing. It has a zero chance of doing anything.
