Says new order restricting hospitality industry will kill businesses, jobs

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Fred Keller (R-PA) today released the following statement in response to Governor Tom Wolf’s latest statewide mandate further restricting operations of Pennsylvania bars and restaurants:

 

“Pennsylvania businesses cannot survive another Governor Wolf-imposed shutdown. The hospitality industry in particular has been one of the hardest hit by Governor Wolf’s inconsistent and confusing shutdown mandates. Many bars and restaurants spent what little Paycheck Protection Program money they have left preparing for the Governor’s 50 percent capacity mandate. Further restrictions will mean the permanent loss of family-owned businesses and the thousands of jobs they support. Governor Wolf is punishing hardworking Pennsylvanians who have done everything right.”
