HARRISBURG – Rep. Matthew Dowling (R-Fayette/Somerset) responded to the fall legislative agenda that Gov. Tom Wolf shared today with the following statement:

“The governor’s ‘plan’ is one that uses this pandemic as an excuse to push a liberal wish list of left-wing policies that have nothing to do with the coronavirus.

“Any reasonable person knows that legalizing recreational marijuana would lead to massive increases in government spending on human service and public safety initiatives at a time when we can least afford it.

“While I continue to work for initiatives to address COVID-19 so life in Pennsylvania can safely return to normal, the governor chooses to spout on about campaign finance reform, which has nothing to do with this goal.

“The governor should be ashamed that he continues to play politics with the pandemic.”
