Pennsylvania’s House Vote to End Emergency Declaration
A vote by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives makes the Governor's pandemic disaster emergency closer to ending and the Governor has nothing to say about it.
The Associated Press reports the Republican-controlled House voted on party lines June 8 to put a halt to the disaster declaration.
It goes to the Senate, also controlled by Republicans, where passage would be the last word. Democratic Governor Tom Wolf has no role in the future of the resolution.
State regulations that have been suspended or waived will be put back into effect, although that process in some cases may take months.
AP says the resolution may affect Pennsylvanians’ ability to get additional food subsidies.
