Legislation for reopening businesses heads to Gov. Wolf’s desk


Harrisburg, PA – The House has sent to the governor’s desk these three key pieces of legislation to potentially be signed into law.

• House Bill 2388 – would reopen auto dealerships, hair salons, barbershops, lawn and garden centers, pet groomers, messenger services and manufacturing.

• House Bill 2412 – would reopen the real estate industry (including inspectors and appraisers).

• Senate Bill 327 – would give county governments the option to develop and implement their own plans to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by allowing industries that have not already been deemed essential to operate, if it is safe to do so.

It’s uncertain if Gov. Wolf will sign these bills into law for Pennsylvania.
