HARRISBURG – The PA House approved a resolution ending the business shutdown across the state. House Majority Leader, Rep. Bryan Cutler of Lancaster County said Gov. Wolf’s business shutdown order has been arbitrary, frustrating, and destructive to family-owned small businesses. He added that the voices of Pennsylvanians have been loud and clear – they want the opportunity to operate safely under our current circumstances, just as Gov. Wolf has allowed so many businesses to do. House Resolution 836 leaves in place the state’s emergency declaration and ensures nursing homes and long-term care facilities can continue to receive the added assistance they need. The resolution would end the executive order to shut down businesses, which Wolf issued on March 17. The resolution, passed with bipartisan support, now advances to the state Senate.
