FOUR (4) PRIMARY BALLOT QUESTIONS
On May 18th, all Pennsylvanians will have a chance to vote on ballot initiatives to restrain Governor Wolf’s executive authority. And, it’s a major issue since the Pennsylvania business community is challenging Democratic governor Wolf’s executive overreach amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pennsylvanians’ year-long calls for lawmakers to limit Wolf’s emergency powers have resulted in a historic ballot referendum, which would amend the state’s constitution and restore checks and balances if passed. Since Wolf’s initial restrictions in March of 2020, he’s vetoed 12 bills PA lawmakers crafted to reopen the economy. Wolf also enacted an uneven, opaque waiver process to determine which “life-sustaining” businesses could stay open, refusing to release exactly what criteria it was using to consider applications, or explain to applicants why waivers were granted or denied.
Voting yes to each of the 4 questions on the ballot are critical to negating the current Democrat power grab in Washington to fundamentally transform America and one in which Wolf intends to rubber stamp during this his last term in office.
Those 4 ballot questions require all voters to mark a “Yes” and are critically warranted:
1) Emergency Declarations
2) Legislative Resolution to Extend or Terminate Emergency Declaration.
In addition to the two questions above, voters in Pennsylvania will see two other questions on their primary ballots completely unrelated to the governor’s powers.
One question would be, if approved, create a constitutional amendment stating that it is illegal to deny an individual’s rights because of race or ethnicity. A final question would expand state-run loan programs to bring more funding to fire and EMS services. The PA Republican Party is urging everyone to put a check next to “Yes” for all 4 questions.
