Senator Argall Condemns Governor Wolf’s New Restaurant Guidelines

HARRISBURG – Senator David G. Argall (Berks/Schuylkill) released the following statement regarding the Governor’s announcement that restaurants will be required to operate at 25% capacity: 

“The Governor doesn’t understand rural Pennsylvania. We heard it firsthand during my four Policy Committee hearings in the last few weeks:  Rising numbers of COVID 19 cases in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia do not mean the Governor should hurt restaurant and bar employees in Sinking Spring, Womelsdorf and Shenandoah.”

“This further ruling by the Governor—who continues to act like King Tom the first, without the approval of the House, the Senate, our local governments, or the public could be the final stake in the heart for many small business employers and thousands of employees in the small towns which I represent.”
