MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (Nov. 30, 2020) - LeadingAge PA President and CEO Adam Marles today condemned Gov. Tom Wolf for vetoing House Bill 1737.  

"House Bill 1737 enjoyed bipartisan support in the legislature," Marles said. "Despite this, Gov. Wolf has turned his back on nursing home providers during a pandemic when they need him the most. Long-term care providers must have the support of their state government at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic is surging and still an immense challenge. Our 370 members all across the commonwealth are waging a 24/7 battle against this virus despite a critical lack of state funding. It is stunning that Gov. Wolf chose trial lawyers over nursing homes on the front lines fighting a pandemic."
