HARRISBURG – House Republicans today laid out their pro-jobs, recovery-focused plan to revive Pennsylvania’s economy after COVID-19 mitigation restrictions negatively impacted businesses throughout the Commonwealth. Entitled “Commonwealth’s COVID Comeback” the plan comes in the form of four bills and one resolution. This legislative package aims to incentivize manufacturing and job creation in Pennsylvania without imposing any new taxes or fees.
On the package, state Rep. Jim Struzzi (R-Indiana) stated:
“Pennsylvanians have truly shown their resiliency over the last several months. They have demonstrated the ability to do what it takes to face and overcome challenges. This package builds on that very momentum and moves us forward to begin to put those difficulties behind us. My colleagues and I are committed to not only recovery, but the growth of Pennsylvania’s economy.
“Governor Wolf has expressed a desire to legalize recreational marijuana in order to address our budgetary shortfalls. My colleagues and I believe that as we work past this period of uncertainty, it is not the time to introduce a concept that is riddled with questions and potential consequences. Instead, our plan looks to present new opportunities for good, well-paying jobs that will advance our economy for years to come, building financial stability for our hard-working families across the Commonwealth.
“I am proud to cosponsor these pieces of legislation that prioritize the revitalization of our economy. I look forward to more coordination with the business community as we work toward not just a new normal, but a Pennsylvania that is better than ever.”
