(Harrisburg) — The bill delaying Pennsylvania’s primary until June 2 is on its way to Gov. Tom Wolf’s desk.

The measure cleared the state Senate and House of Representatives with unanimous votes Wednesday afternoon. Wolf on Wednesday said he will sign it, and could do so as soon as Wednesday.

The bill would postpone Pennsylvania’s presidential primary for 2020 only. House lawmakers approved an amended version on Tuesday afternoon.
