The investment to help eliminate threats from lead, asbestos and mold in Philadelphia schools announced by Gov. Tom Wolf, state Sen. Vincent J. Hughes (D-Philadelphia), other officials is an “excellent beginning and a down payment for our children’s future,” according to Hughes.

“The governor and the school district have made this investment happen and they should be congratulated for their work, but we are not finished in finding even more resources to help our children. Today, let’s celebrate this wonderful investment in our children’s future; tomorrow, let’s get back to work and finish the job.”
