One of Pennsylvania’s top-ranking Republicans said lawmakers likely won’t legalize recreational marijuana this fall, despite Gov. Tom Wolf’s pleas.

“Like with any issue, a bill would need to work its way through the Senate Committee process to be vetted,” Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman said, according to the Courier-Express in DuBois. “Movement on this issue should not be expected this fall.”

Wolf last month called on the Legislature to legalize an adult-use commercial program in part to relieve state fiscal pressures caused by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

He also wants to set aside 50% of marijuana tax revenues for historically disadvantaged small businesses.
