These allegations illustrate the urgent need for non-discrimination protection legislation. For far too long, Pennsylvania has failed to protect all of our citizens from acts of discrimination in employment and housing. A recent report ranked our commonwealth among the lowest group of states for these protections, which is unacceptable and counter to our place in history.  I urge the General Assembly to pass and send me the Pennsylvania Fairness Act to sign upon its return to Harrisburg later this month.”# # #center_img Governor Wolf Statement on Federal EEOC Lawsuit against Pittsburgh-area Medical Facility for LGBT Discriminationlast_img read more
