Governor Wolf reintroduced the PA Opportunity Program Tuesday, which would send $2,000 to households making $80,000 or less.

The program was first introduced earlier this year, but Wolf accused Republicans in the state legislature for causing the proposal to lose momentum.

Republicans say the plan lacks common sense; House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff says in a statement the program would only lead to higher inflation.
