With the looming threat of Gov. Tom Wolf vetoing his unanimously-passed Right-to-Know (RTK) legislation, state Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) hosted a Facebook Live discussion Monday with Melissa Melewsky, media law counsel with the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association.

“Favoring transparency is more than words. It means providing the public with a view of not just what is happening, but why. That is what makes the governor’s threat to veto this emergency RTK legislation so concerning,” Grove said. “State government has successfully demonstrated its portability during the COVID-19 pandemic as many aspects of it smoothly transitioned when asked to work from a remote location. With today’s technology, RTK requests can be asked and answered quickly and flawlessly without exposing confidential information.”
