Deasy, other House Democrats call on Wolf to waive restaurant fees

(Oct 16, 2020)

HARRISBURG, Oct. 16 – On Thursday, state Rep. Dan Deasy, D-Allegheny, along with other House Democrats, sent a letter to the Wolf administration , asking that they seriously consider waiving filing, surcharge and license fees paid by restaurants for the coming year. Deasy’s statement on the request is as follows: “The Wolf administration took on a daunting task this year – tackling the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a job not many could accomplish, but one of which I personally can say has been handled adequately, Deasy said. “There’s no easy answer or solution to meeting all Pennsylvanians’ needs during this trying time, but our governor has made it his personal goal to help as many people as possible. For that, I commend him and his administration. “However, as Democratic chairman of the House Liquor Control Committee, it’s my duty to ask that we do more for our restaurants, specifically our ‘Mom and Pop’ establishments. The Wolf administration has loosened restrictions as of late, allowing these private, family-owned businesses to receive much-needed relief. But more needs to be done at the state and federal level as the winter months approach. “Due to this, I’m asking the Wolf administration to consider waiving filing, surcharge and license fees paid by bars and restaurants for the coming year. This will alleviate much of the financial hardships Read more
