Governor Tom Corbett visited the York Fair  on Saturday, and he brought a big check with him.
The Governor was there to present $21,000 from the State Fair Fund.
He also presented an award for Outstanding Fair Ambassador to a long-time York Fair volunteer.
Governor Corbett says the Fair Fund is now up to $3-million. He’s been giving the money to fairs across Pennsylvania.
“This actually represents money based upon last year’s fair, and then next year we’ll be doing one based on this year’s fair. This is money the fair board can use to work on projects now and into next year,” says Gov. Corbett.
The York Fair wraps up Sunday, Sept. 15th.
In other state news, reports say the Governor will lay out his plans to improve healthcare in the upcoming week.
He’s expected to discuss whether he will move forward with Medicaid expansion under President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
