Following Wolf veto, DiGirolamo bill is set to 'take another run' at state support for new voting machines

At least one member is taking another run at ensuring counties get upwards of $90 million to underwrite the cost of buying new voting machines, just days after Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed a larger bill that would have doled out money to local governments for that purpose.

Wolf vetoed SB 48 on Friday, a bill which would have raised the $90 million by bonding, covering up to 60 percent of the costs incurred by counties from complying with a Department of State mandate to replace all voting machines by the 2020 presidential election.

Wolf holds ceremonial signing for bills that encourage students to report sexual assault on college campuses

Gov. Tom Wolf held a press conference to discuss legislation that is being signed that would encourage more students to come forward and report sexual assault on college campuses.

The governor proposed two campus safety initiatives, one of which requires colleges to offer an online anonymous option for students to report sexual assault. The second initiative protects a student who comes forward to report sexual assault from getting in trouble for violating school drug, alcohol or other policies.
