HARRISBURG, Pa. (WTAJ) — Governor Wolf vetoed a House Resolution on Tuesday that called for an end to his disaster declaration for the state’s response to COVID-19.

HR 836 was sent to Gov. Wolf on July 8 after being presented by Republican State Senators. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court sided with the governor, calling the resolution a “legal nullity.”
