House Republicans Ready to Work with Wolf on Recovery Plan
HARRISBURG – The House Republican Leadership team (Speaker Mike Turzai, R-Allegheny; Majority Leader Bryan Cutler, R-Lancaster; Appropriations Committee Chairman Stan Saylor, R-York; Majority Whip Kerry Benninghoff, R-Centre/Mifflin; Policy Committee Chairman Donna Oberlander, R-Clarion/Armstrong/Forest; Caucus Chairman Marcy Toepel, R-Montgomery; Caucus Secretary Mike Reese, R-Westmoreland/Somerset; and Caucus Administrator Kurt Masser, R-Columbia/Montour/Northumberland) issue the following statement in response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s announcement tonight on a reopening plan for Pennsylvania:

“Our members have heard from thousands of Pennsylvanians frustrated by a lack of transparency in the decision-making by the Wolf Administration throughout this pandemic. We are pleased that tonight, Gov. Wolf pulled back the curtain and provided direct and measurable guidelines his administration will follow to allow Pennsylvanians to safely return to work and provide for their families.

“We look forward to continuing to engage with the administration and all branches of government to rebuild and recover our economy. We must continue to help the millions of Pennsylvanians who are out of work as a result of this pandemic by processing unemployment compensation claims in a timely manner and getting funds to self-employed residents.

“The challenges facing millions of Pennsylvanians will require continued sacrifices and a united approach. House Republican members will continue to lift the voices of families, workers and job creators as we help pave a path to a safe and prosperous future for every resident of our Commonwealth.”
