PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, joined KDKA Radio on Tuesday morning to discuss his top priorities for the new year and the rest of his term.

He plans to, among other things, raise the minimum wage, combat climate change, and improve schooling at all levels.

“We need to make sure that the education system is relevant, but also accessible and affordable - we have too much student debt; healthcare continues to be a big thing that is a national, but it’s also a state issue,” Governor Wolf explains.

“Guns, criminal justice reform, and we need to figure out some way to help local areas deal with the challenges that they're facing with floods and all kinds of infrastructure issues.”

Wolf’s “Restore Pennsylvania” plan focuses on repairing faulty facilities and foundations across the state.
