As many of our readers are extremely frustrated with Governor Wolf’s Order of Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Regarding the Closure of All Businesses that are not Life Sustaining, and incorporated List of Life Sustaining Businesses, of March 19, 2020, it is important to know, while we await the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s decision, that the Pennsylvania General Assembly can end the state of emergency at any time.
Specifically, 35 Pa.C.S. § 7301(c) provides, in pertinent part:
The General Assembly by concurrent resolution may terminate a state of disaster emergency at any time. Thereupon, the Governor shall issue an executive order or proclamation ending the state of disaster emergency.
So, why aren’t you reaching out to your elected representatives and letting them know that you demand that they immediately terminate the state of disaster? If you don’t know who your representatives are, you can search here – https://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/home/findyourlegislator. And from what I understand, it is the House and Senate Leadership that are failing to take action, not the individual members. You can find the House Leadership here and the Senate Leadership here. Let your voice be heard!
