HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Governor Tom Wolf said in a statement Monday evening that he looks forward to signing a bill authorizing ride-sharing services in Pennsylvania.

The legislature passed a long-term solution for companies like Lyft and Uber to operate across the Keystone State.

Wolf released a statement saying in part, “The commonwealth has proven itself to be a place where these companies can invest and grow, and we must continue to find ways to fuel the development of these and other high-tech companies.”

Senate Bill 984 is headed for Wolf’s desk after passing in the Senate Monday by a vote of 47-1.

The legislation’s prime sponsor is Sen. Camera Bartolotta.
