Gov. Wolf Urges Congress to Consider Key Priorities in American Families Plan That Will Support Pennsylvanians (September 14, 2021)

On September 10, 2021, Governor Tom Wolf sent a letter to the Pennsylvania Congressional Delegation sharing his priorities for Pennsylvania as the US Congress considers major aspects of President Biden’s American Families Plan.

Specifically, Governor Wolf urged Congress to approve such items as universal preschool for 3- and 4-year-old children with strong investments in these programs, access to postsecondary education through investments in the plan’s proposed College Completion Fund, and increased funding that would provide states with enhanced Medicaid funding for home and community-bases services if they carry out certain activities that will support expanding access to these services and strengthen the workforce providing them. Such funding would help provide care to those with disabilities.
