VIDEO: PA Rep. Diamond Briefing on Ending Disaster Emergency

Pennsylvania State Rep. Russ Diamond plans a noon press conference on Wednesday, June 10, to address the vote on House Resolution 836 last night.

That vote on the concurrent resolution, per the Pennsylvania Constitution, is supposed to end the Disaster Emergency declaration originally signed by Governor Tom Wolf back in March and renewed last week.

You can watch that press conference here, starting at noon on Wednesday:

Pennsylvania Constitution states very clearly that a concurrent resolution between the state House and Senate can end any Disaster Emergency declaration. That’s what happened on Tuesday, with some Democrats breaking from their caucus to vote in favor of the measure. The next step is also clear: Wolf must sign a proclamation or executive order ending his Disaster Emergency.

However, late Tuesday night, Wolf indicated he would try to veto such a resolution, a power not granted to him anywhere in the state’s Constitution.

So, on Wednesday, as members of the House and Senate are urging Pennsylvanians to resume their lives and open the businesses, many remain confused on what to do. That’s likely because they’ve been conditioned by Wolf’s orders since the start of Pennsylvania’s pandemic response as he, and he alone, has commandeered the attention and authority from the public.

    If Wolf is not a dictator, the stoplight game will be over.

    It is about time! You can protest and not be six feet apart but cannot open your business? That is utterly ridiculous…..everyone should open instead of being scared of permanently shut down. If everyone opened and stood united, they won’t close you down! Unite and open!

    Hasn’t anyone heard yet that the virus is actually a bacterium? The Italians discovered that and are now after the WHO and Kill Gates for their crimes against humanity, by misleading withholding critical information from everyone about this so called virus. They discovered that it clogged up the blood in the veins. Their treatment was 100mg of aspirin and a coagulent. 14,000 ppl were ronavirus free and released….
    Can we be so lucky to have leaders who care like this?

      Excellent observation Maia…
      There’s no money to be made in that simple approach…
      there’s no crisis management in that approach…
      there’s no stoking fear and divisiveness in that approach…
      there’s no hurting the President in that approach
      …my Wife and I began to take 10000 mg of vitamin C daily, months ago, aspirin and high quality zinc and quercitin, helping blood flow and scrubbing arteries, while boosting immunity.
