An override attempt of Governor Wolf’s veto of a bill that sought to loosen restrictions on restaurants in Pennsylvania has failed.
Those who voted against the override said it wasn’t in the interest of public health.
“This bill would permit establishments to up to 100 percent capacity without having to follow and mitigation guidelines,” state Democratic House Leader Frank Dermody said. “You are putting people in harms way with this legislation.”
Republican Kurt Maser voted in favor of the bill saying restaurants are teetering in financial limbo.
“In September, 66 percent of restaurants in Pennsylvania said they won’t survive six months with the current mitigation, that is compared to 38 percent nationwide,” Maser said. “Pennsylvania restaurants and clubs are clearly suffering more because of the [Wolf’s] administration’s actions.”
Wolf is expected to make an announcement about support for restaurants and bars later today on Mount Washington in Pittsburgh.
