According to Franklin County Representative Paul Schemel, the House passed a resolution tonight to end the governor’s COVID-19 emergency declaration. This was done on a 121-81, bipartisan vote. The Senate has already passed the same resolution.
Under the Pennsylvania Constitution, the General Assembly has the authority to terminate a state of disaster emergency at any time by concurrent resolution. Upon adoption of the resolution, the governor must issue an executive order or proclamation ending the state of disaster emergency. Today’s House vote completes the concurrent resolution process.
Now, let’s see what lawless Governor Tom Wolf will do. Keep in mind that there is already a resolution of impeachment seeking sponsors in the House.
Your move, Governor!
