Keep the People in the Process...SHOW UP and VOTE YES TO BOTH:
The Pennsylvania Emergency Declaration Amendment (2021) is on the ballot in Pennsylvania as a legislatively referred constitutional amendment in May 18, 2021.
A "yes" vote supports this constitutional amendment to limit the governor's emergency declaration to 21 days unless the legislature votes on a concurrent resolution to extend the order and provide that the state legislature shall pass laws related to how disaster emergencies must be managed.
A "no" vote opposes this constitutional amendment, meaning the governor would continue to be allowed to issue emergency declarations without a legislative vote after 21 days.
The Pennsylvania Legislative Resolution to Extend or Terminate Emergency Declaration Amendment is on the ballot in Pennsylvania as a legislatively referred constitutional amendment in May 18, 2021.
A "yes" vote supports this constitutional amendment to allow the Pennsylvania General Assembly to pass a resolution, which the governor cannot veto, by a simple majority to extend or terminate the governor's emergency declaration.
A "no" vote opposes this constitutional amendment, meaning that the governor would continue to be allowed to veto resolutions terminating emergency declarations and a two-thirds legislative vote would be required to override the veto.
