Ciresi thanks Gov. Wolf for action on real estate

MONTGOMERY, May 19 – State Rep. Joe Ciresi, D-Montgomery, thanked Gov. Tom Wolf for his order that allows for the reopening of limited real estate transactions, which was announced today.

“Governor Wolf and I have been listening to your concerns and I’m thankful that he has recognized housing as a life-sustaining industry by working to reopen limited real estate transactions,” Ciresi said. “I have worked with the governor on this issue and co-sponsored legislation in the House that would have reopened real estate services. Measured and limited services, especially in recognition of housing as a basic need, will help Pennsylvanians while still protecting them. We cannot allow residents to continue to live in a terrible situation at a time when isolation is so important to our health. I ensured there were other mitigation and safety guidelines included in the bill to help protect customers and workers alike.”

Ciresi was listed as the second co-sponsor of H.B. 2412, introduced by Rep. Todd Polinchock (R-Bucks), to reopen real estate activities statewide. Real estate services are designated as a life-sustaining business in the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Advisory Memorandum.
