In his first two months as Pennsylvania’s chief executive, Gov. Tom Wolf has seemed unafraid to make waves, and the resulting legal battles may dramatically affect the power of the governor’s office.

In his first week, he terminated a number of officials appointed at the last minute by his predecessor. A few weeks later, he announced a moratorium on the death penalty in the state, saying he would grant a reprieve to any death-row inmate scheduled for execution. And at the beginning of March, following the Philadelphia School Reform Commission’s approval of five new charter schools, he replaced Bill Green as chairman of the commission.
