Legislators to Call on Wolf to Sign Welfare Reforms in Human Service Code
10/16/2017
WHAT: Legislators will call on Gov. Tom Wolf to sign House Bill 59, the Human Services Code. Entitlement spending is consistently a main cost driver, and until these costs are brought under control, Pennsylvania will continue to face significant budget challenges. Contrary to claims by spending advocates, the Human Services Code passed by the General Assembly includes reasonable reforms to the state’s welfare system, and Republicans believe it is in the best interest of Pennsylvanians for it to become law.

WHO: The House Republican Leadership team and members: Speaker of the House Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny), Majority Leader Dave Reed (R-Indiana), Majority Whip Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster), Appropriations Committee Chairman Stan Saylor (R-York); Policy Committee Chairman Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin); Caucus Chairman Marcy Toepel (R-Montgomery); Caucus Administrator Kurt Masser (R-Columbia/Mountour/Northumberland); and Caucus Secretary Donna Oberlander (R-Clarion/Armstrong/Forest).

WHEN: Tuesday, Oct. 17, at 2 p.m.

WHERE: Main Capitol Rotunda, Harrisburg (podium and mult box will be set up). Or watch live on PAHouseGOP.com.
