Wolf vetoes bill on inspector general, 3 other measures

HARRISBURG (AP) — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is using his veto power on four bills, including legislation that would have made the inspector general’s office an independent agency and required the inspector general to be confirmed by the Senate.

Wolf announced on Friday he also rejected bills that would have given lawmakers the ability to delay decisions by the state’s regulatory commission, let people outside Philadelphia serve on the city’s parking commission and required Senate approval of his appointments to the Delaware River Port Authority.

He’s also signing into law bills to deal with horse racing purses and to meet standards in federal law regarding parents who have committed child sexual abuse and help combat human trafficking of children.
