Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is still trying to get two-thousand-dollar checks in the hands of needy Pennsylvanians. He had proposed the program for the first time in February, but it didn’t win enough support to pass through budget negotiations this summer. State GOP leadership had argued that the state’s couldn’t give out federal COVID-relief funds. But now, Wolf said, there is more than enough money in the state’s own treasury to fund the 500-million-dollar program. It could affect more than 250-thousand state residents.
