Veto-proof? Because you know damn well he is going to do it for spite if he can.
Oh, the little commie isn’t gonna like that!!
What’s his transgender buddy think about all that?....LMAO.
He can’t veto it.
“Pursuant to 35 Pa.C.S. 7301(c), upon the passage by the House and Senate of a concurrent resolution terminating a disaster declaration, the Governor SHALL (emphasis added) issue an executive order or proclamation ending the state of disaster emergency.”
Nothing in the statute requires the resolution to go to the Governor for signature/veto. A concurrent resolution ending a disaster declaration is not an exercise of the legislatures lawmaking authority that the Gov can sign/veto. The Governor is statutorily required to issue an order terminating the declaration in compliance with section 7301 if the House passes the resolution as adopted by the Senate. He has no discretion in this matter.
Good news! What happens if he vetoes this?
Frankly, I think people should just go ahead and do what they want. If the protesters could romp around the streets with impunity, then a business should be able to open its doors (and without masks or limitations on occupancy).
What are they going to do if all the businesses just open? Of course, in that case they might actually call out the National Guard, but I dont think youd get a one who would shoot.
Tommie the Commie was one of the jackass “protesters”.
But Wolfe says it’s not over. see the Fox News article.
He is fighting it. Will not even consider it coming to his desk. He is giving it to the courts to decide. And even if they say pass it he is indicating he will not budge.
IT is speaking now. Saying that there is going to be a spike in the Fall. (just in time for elections)
Wolfe is a condescending snit. Talking down to everyone.
“IT is speaking now. “
You mean the freak? I would rather gouge my eyes out and thanks for the warning..
Aw, come on. Richard / Rachel’s a real hottie!
(And please, people... no pictures. It’s lunch hour...).
They have concluded that the action that was taken last night was meaningless.
Everything still stands.
Sweet! Thank you for telling us that, I wonder if Michigan can do the exact same thing now.
Would you not expect Wolf to veto the resolution anyway and challenge the constitutionality of the statute?
The only similar legislative power that I know of is congresss war making authority which does not require the presidents signature.
Not that I am an expert on state constitutions by any stretch.
Just saying that it is an odd statute. But I think it is a good check on executive power in the case that a despotic governor might invoke martial law and keep the emergency in effect for no good reason.
Just happens to be the case at this particular time.
Time for Leftist Dictator Governors to get with the program and allow people their freedoms.
REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER, VOTE OUT ALL DEMOCRATS ON THE BALLOT.
Oh, come on! You know the only people Dem governors are allowing their freedom are the rioters!
‘They have concluded that the action that was taken last night was meaningless.’
who are ‘they’...?
Wolfe may say he wishes to ignore the legislature, but what this really means is that the citizens of Pennsylvania are now free to ignore him. I would say that his “orders” are now void and legally unenforceable. Further, any law enforcement officer or public official who attempts to enforce them is subject to civil liability for taking an unawful action.
