HARRISBURG – State lawmakers will try to override Gov. Tom Wolf’s veto of House Bill 2787, legislation that passed both the state House and the Senate with a veto-proof bipartisan majority that would ensure decisions about the resumption of school sports and spectators can be made at the local level. PA House Majority Leader, Centre County Rep. Kerry Benninghoff said the measure represents the good bipartisan work that has been done by the General Assembly to represent the voice of the people during this difficult time. He said in vetoing this bill, Gov. Wolf stands directly opposed to children and families looking for some semblance of normalcy and to receive the numerous invaluable benefits of fully participating in school sports. In contradiction to his word, Gov. Wolf is once again going back on his self-proclaimed desire for educational decisions to be made at the local level.
