HARRISBURG – Gov. Tom Wolf signed legislation that carries over $900 million in pandemic-driven aid for hard-hit hospitality businesses, private schools, and people struggling to pay rent or utility bills. Both chambers passed Senate Bill 109 unanimously Friday. Most of the $912 million in the bill is federal aid approved by Congress in December. Some of it, $145 million, is cash from a state worker’s compensation fund that would be available in grants of up to $50,000 for restaurants and hotels with under 300 employees. The majority of the money, $570 million, would help people struggling to pay their rent or utilities.
