Daily 3

As thousands of Pennsylvanians continue to wait for unemployment compensation, a hearing was held Tuesday to address these delays. Rep. Klunk (R-Hanover) is hopeful after Tuesday’s hearing.

“Thankfully their response was positive. The Secretary was interested in fully complying with those right to know requests, which is encouraging because in the past it’s been hard to get information out of the department,” said Rep. Klunk.

In Lancaster County, election officials expect to get 120,000 mail-in ballots this year.  Randall Wenger, Lancaster County Election Director, said in order to count mail-in ballots as quickly as possible officials will set up a mammoth counting operation at the Lancaster County Convention Center.
