Wolf vetoes bills on debt, price gouging, ag education

October 24, 2018

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is vetoing bills that recently passed the Legislature dealing with public debt, price gouging during emergencies and agricultural education.

The Democratic governor on Wednesday rejected legislation that addresses how the state pays down debt, saying it would reduce flexibility.

Republican House Speaker Mike Turzai is calling the veto fiscally irresponsible and notes the bill passed nearly unanimously.

Wolf also vetoed legislation he says would undermine a law against price gouging during declared states of emergency.

The third veto was of a bill addressing federally funded agricultural education programs.
