PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A resolution that would end parts of Pennsylvania Gov.Tom Wolf’s COVID-19 emergency declaration order has advanced in the State House. It was introduced one week after voters approved a pair of constitutional amendments.

The resolution from House Speaker Kerry Benninghoff (R-Lancaster) is based on those pending amendments.

It would end several parts of the governor’s emergency declaration, including occupancy limits, business closures, and stay-at-home orders, while extending other parts into October, like allowing regulatory suspensions for things like telehealth.
