HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin) today responded to the announcement by the Department of Health that COVID-19 mitigation orders, other than the mask mandate, will be lifted by May 31, 2021.
“Over the last 14 months, Pennsylvanians have had to not only endure the health impacts and threats of a global pandemic, but have also struggled through government mitigation orders that picked winners and losers and unfairly targeted certain industries over others.
“Today’s announcement is undoubtedly welcomed news for a Commonwealth that has suffered for far too long under unilateral and often confusing mitigation orders that have done untold damage to our children’s education, our economy and Pennsylvania’s future. Unfortunately for many hard-working Pennsylvanians trying to live the American dream, this announcement might come too late.
“The Pennsylvania House Republican Caucus will continue to prioritize this Commonwealth’s economic recovery and is constantly working to make Pennsylvania the Envy of the East.”
