Philadelphia, PA override Pennsylvania’s governor Tom Wolfs - The Pennsylvania State House failed by a slim margin to override Pennsylvania’s governor Tom Wolfs veto of a bill which would have allowed restaurants reopen at full capacity with few exceptions.

 

The vote failed by 133-69; a two-thirds approval is needed to be sent to the Senate to override the veto.

Currently, taverns and restaurants are allowed to open at half capacity or more if they met state and federal social distancing standards.

Minority Leader Frank Dermody, D-Allegheny, warned the legislation would put patrons and restaurant workers at risk, reported by the AP Press.
