HARRISBURG – Gov. Tom Wolf has vetoed House Bill 2787, which would have given school districts the sole ability to make decisions on sports, including whether and how many spectators to allow. State lawmakers are planning to vote to try to override Wolf’s veto.The bill which cleared the state House and Senate with bipartisan support would have empowered schools to make their own rules about the number of spectators permitted at games. Wolf says his gathering limits of no more than 25 people indoors and 250 people outdoors should apply to youth sports to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Wolf said the bill was “entirely unnecessary.”
