PA House committee to take up resolution ending ending Wolf’s Disaster Declaration

Harrisburg, PA

Rep. Stephen Barrar (R-Chester/Delaware), chairman of the House Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee, will hold a voting meeting today to consider several measures including House resolutions honoring veterans, EMS providers, the American Red Cross and the 75th anniversary of VJ Day.

The committee will also take up a concurrent resolution terminating Pennsylvania’s disaster emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The law Governor Wolf uses to continue the COVID-19 Governor’s Orders allows the legislature to terminate his orders by a majority vote.
