HARRISBURG – On the heels of Gov. Tom Wolf’s sudden recommendation for schools to suspend sports until Jan. 1, Rep. Seth Grove (R-Dover) filed a series of Right-to-Know (RTK) requests with the Department of Health and Department of Education. The requests seek the data Wolf used to make his decision. Grove said, “To get to the bottom of how the decision was made to end fall youth sports and pursuant to Act 77 of 2020, I filed two RTKs with the Department of State and the Department of Education requesting the data and models used to reach their new recommendations on youth sports.
“This is precisely why the General Assembly unanimously adopted Act 77 of 2020, to ensure the public has the exact reasons and data on why decisions are being made during emergency declarations. During these times, the public deserves more transparency not more decisions shrouded in darkness.”
