Wolf’s counsel suggests the PA secretary of health might be in charge.
The PA Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine answers a question submitted by the media and then read by a PA state employee during an episode of the Levine & Wolf Show covered by the media with no media present. Wolf is visible in the background.
Wolf’s counsel asserts that even if the legislature’s bipartisan efforts to void Wolf’s emergency declarations are successful, the no large gatherings, the stay-at-home, the business closures, etc. will remain in effect under the parallel orders issued by the PA secretary of health.

Tuesday night, the state legislature voted to shred Gov. Wolf’s public health emergency disaster declaration on separate Senate and House votes which, mostly Republican supporters said, would have the main effect of ending the state’s top-down COVID-19 restrictions on businesses, schools and public gathering spots, and let people make their own decisions about living in the pandemic.
Wednesday, Wolf and his top lawyer said the resolution isn’t worth the paper it’s written on without the governor’s approval, which he will not give.
