HARRISBURG – Republican leaders of the PA General Assembly issued a statement in response to Gov. Wolf’s Election Day executive order. They say “Free and fair elections mean that one person cannot change the rules at the 11th hour. Pure and simple. The General Assembly was not consulted or advised of this order. Working together has to be more than a talking point. The founding fathers established a system with checks and balances. Even in an emergency, the General Assembly has an obligation to protect our citizens while defending our democracy. We are working with our counsel to determine what steps are available to ensure the people’s trust in the election process is solidified.”
