Message from the General Chairman

Hello Brothers and Sisters,

State legislative director Paul Pokrowka, SMART Transportation and BLET Legislative Director, Tim Laveling worked with Don Hill and Bernie Norwood to contact Pennsylvania Governor Wolf’s office to mandate wearing face MASK/covering while traveling on public transportation. This evening 4/15/2020, the Governor followed New Jersey by ordering anyone using Mass Transportation to use a Face MASK or covering which their company has to provide if they can not provide one for themselves. We would like to thank Paul and Tim for reaching out to Harrisburg to connect with the right people to get it done. The order from the Governor takes effect on Sunday 4/19/2020.
