Gov. Wolf Calls for $2,000 Payments, Wage Increase for Pennsylvanians

Governor Tom Wolf was joined by Representative Patty Kim at Wesley Union A.M.E. Zion Church in Harrisburg to call on Pennsylvania's Republican-led General Assembly to finally act to support Pennsylvanians by passing legislation for the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA)-funded $500 million PA Opportunity Program, which would send checks of up to $2,000 to millions of Pennsylvanians.

"I first introduced this plan four months ago," said Gov. Wolf. "A lot has changed since then, from inflation to price increases to a war in Ukraine. Pennsylvanians need our support even more today than they did in February. Under my plan, Pennsylvania households earning $80,000 or less will get up to $2,000, and they can use the money for whatever they need.

"This plan will help Pennsylvanians get back on their feet right now - but I also want to look ahead, to the long-term solutions that will help keep Pennsylvanians on the path to prosperity. That's why I support raising the minimum wage for all Pennsylvanians."
