Gov. Tom Wolf is following through on his threat to veto legislation designed to prevent his administration from closing two state centers for the intellectually disabled.The bill emerged after Wolf's announcement in August that he would close White Haven in Luzerne County and Polk in the northwestern part of the state.  Local legislators have said they will continue to work to override the veto. The governor says the focus now is to move ahead with finding other places for residents to go.
