CENTER – Rep. Josh Kail (R-Beaver/Washington) issued the following statement regarding Gov. Tom Wolf’s plan to move to the next phase of reopening in the northwest and north central regions of the state:

“I am disappointed that the people of southwestern Pennsylvania – an area that has done a good job mitigating the coronavirus – are not yet trusted to make the right decisions for their own health and that of their families, friends and neighbors.

“We should have a better process in place for areas like ours that are stuck under the stay-at-home order indefinitely. Rather than focusing on dividing workers into essential and non-essential groups, we should be thinking about whether businesses can operate safely.

“It is positive that roughly a third of the state’s counties will soon get a taste of ‘normal life.’ I’m sure residents are looking forward to reclaiming their financial independence, and I want that for the Pittsburgh area, too. We’d like to see the light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel also.”
