HARRISBURG  – Gov. Tom Wolf joined Democrat lawmakers to discuss reintroduction of the PA Opportunity Program, which would send $2,000 checks directly to Pennsylvanians. In February, Gov. Wolf unveiled a $1.7 billion proposal for PA’s $2 billion in federal American Rescue Plan Act dollars. While Democrat leaders in the state Senate and House have introduced legislation, the Republican-led General Assembly did not appropriate the funding for the program during budget negotiations. Wolf said, “People need help now, and we can afford to help them. Let’s put this cash back in the pockets of Pennsylvanians, to help cover the higher costs of gas, groceries, and everything else.”
