Within a single week, thousands of home care workers, educators, and taxpayers were relieved of the governor’s punitive—and unlawful—penalization. First, Gov. Wolf’s administration suspended a mandatory “orientation program” for Pennsylvania home care workers.
Gov. Wolf also reversed his previous decision not to release approval letters for the Educational Improvement Tax Credit and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit programs. In violation of state law, Wolf erroneously claimed he could not release tax credit approval letters. Roughly a week after school administrators, nonprofits, CF, and legislators across the state spoke out, the governor backtracked and said he could release approval letters.
