HARRISBURG (AP) — Republican leaders of Pennsylvania’s Legislature says Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration is trying to sabotage ballot questions to amend the constitution to shift authority over the length of emergency declarations from governors to lawmakers. The measures arose from Republican lawmakers’ strident disagreement with how Wolf has handled the coronavirus pandemic. In a news conference Wednesday, Republican lawmakers said Wolf’s administration purposely wrote the questions with wording designed to scare voters into rejecting them. Wolf’s office says the wording in the ballot questions fairly, accurately and clearly apprise the voter of the issue. The Republican-controlled Legislature approved the proposals heading to the ballot. Wolf opposes them.
