HARRISBURG (AP) – Gov. Tom Wolf says the Commonwealth does not have the money to provide $100 a week as President Donald Trump pushes states to help pay for a new round of federal unemployment assistance. In a letter to PA’s congressional delegation, Wolf urged them anew to extend the $600 per-week federal benefit, which ended last month. He also warned that the plan is a convoluted and short-lived proposal that will delay payments to unemployed Pennsylvanians and create costly administrative burdens for states. States are deciding whether to sign onto the President’s plan, a new $400 a week benefit that requires a state to commit to providing $100.
