Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf vetoed a bill on Monday September 21, that if passed would’ve allowed schools to have the power to decide how many fans could be present at high school sports games. Governor Wolf had 10 days to either veto or pass the bill and Monday marked the 10th day. He made his feelings very clear at a media gathering, in which he stated that the virus is not a made up thing and politicians need to stop acting like they can wave a magic wand and suspend reality. Lawmakers are ready to override the bill. The House will reconvene on September 29th and can make the choice to override the veto. State Representative Mike Reese commented on Governor Wolfs decision to veto the bill. He believes that the Governor has a complete distrust in local officials and is implying he doesn’t trust them in making decisions. Reese also believes that Governor Wolf is telling the state that the virus is out to get us. Reese along with other sources believe he is inconsistent with the message that he is trying to portray. Once the bill is passed through the house it can make its way through the Senate and possibly, schools in Pennsylvania may be able to decide the amount of people at school gatherings, just not today.
