Breaking: Voters Decide to Limit Governor’s Emergency Powers

The Associated Press has announced that, based on unofficial results, Pennsylvania voters have become the first in the nation to curtail a Governor’s authority to declare unending disaster emergencies. The two proposed amendments have received almost 54 percent of the vote with 73 percent of precincts reporting.

Disaster emergencies declared by the Governor will now be limited to 21 days unless the General Assembly approves an extension. Also, a simple majority of the House and Senate will be able to vote to end a declared disaster emergency.

We will let you know if there are any further developments.
