Gov. Tom Wolf recently signed into law House Bill 859 to assist nonprofits with safety and security measures. The legislation was requested in response to attacks against the Jewish community, including the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh.
“Schools and other community institutions should be a safe place for every child and resident,” Wolf said. “I thank the bipartisan efforts that helped ensure safety and security funding was available for these non-profit, community institutions where people gather and should have peace of mind.”
