Also see . . .  Governor George Howard Earle III. George Howard Earle III led Pennsylvania through the height of the Great Depression. A record 3,514 bills were introduced in the state legislature in Earle's first two years. The legislature passed the state's first civil rights bill and the first gasoline and cigarette tax; approved the construction of the Pennsylvania Turnpike; passed the nation's first milk control bill; and outlawed the worker-hated coal and iron police hired by mining companies to enforce company interests. Pennsylvania's Blue laws were finally relaxed to allow people to go to the movies or enjoy fishing on Sundays, the last state in the U. S. to allow the latter.
