Governor Wolf and the Pennsylvania State Nurses Association released the following joint statement:
“Nurses are on the frontlines of our healthcare system and they know the devastating impact a repeal of the Affordable Care Act without an immediate and carefully-considered replacement could have on millions of Americans.

It has also made life-saving treatments available to nearly 124,000 Pennsylvanians who suffer from substance abuse.
