HARRISBURG – Legislation will be introduced to provide a new grant program to relieve PA’s hospitality industry of the burdens precipitated by Gov. Tom Wolf’s latest restrictions. The sponsor of the measure, Bucks County Rep. Todd Polinchock says the damaging and crippling effects from unfair restrictions on those in the hospitality industry is alarming. We need to do everything we can to protect these small businesses, from restaurants, taverns, caterers, and hotels and all the employees who work in it. The legislation would create a program dedicating $500 million in forthcoming federal assistance for COVID relief to grants that could be used to bring the hospitality industry back to life when the coronavirus crisis passes.
