HARRISBURG – Following the guidance of House Speaker Mike Turzai, Rep. Jim Gregory (R-Blair) was in Harrisburg on Monday to vote on legislation related to COVID-19, commonly referred to as coronavirus.

Gregory’s district offices in Bellwood and Hollidaysburg are temporarily closed to walk-in visitors. Constituents with issues needing addressed by district office personnel can call 814-695-2398.

“The House met today to advance legislation requested by Gov. Tom Wolf to address the coronavirus pandemic. Additionally, the House voted unanimously to change the rules to allow for voting during the pandemic to happen from our districts,” Gregory said. “We want our constituents’ voices to be heard, while we also want to ensure the governor cannot operate without checks and balances.”
Gregory plans to be in the Capitol for voting unless circumstances change.

Gregory said that he apologizes for the district offices being closed to walk-in visitors, but noted that he is following guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Health to practice social distancing.

The Capitol Complex in Harrisburg was closed to the public starting late last week.
