Speaker of the House Mike Turzai released this statement:
"I've asked Governor Wolf to call a Special Session on policing and our communities. As Speaker of the House, I stand in solidarity with those confronting racism and racial injustice. We do have an opportunity to show the nation, that in Pennsylvania, all men, women, and children are created equal and are deserving of all the dignity of being human.
"Silence is not the answer for these challenging times."
