“…never in the commonwealth’s history [have two people] claimed such broad powers for so long a time.”

Beginning at 8 PM, April 1, 2020 all of Pennsylvania “ordered to stay at home” by Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine

The pandemic was certainly a crisis, but never in the commonwealth’s history has any executive claimed such broad powers for so long a time. The British army occupied Philadelphia during the American Revolution. Confederates invaded central Pennsylvania in the Civil War. Even amid these threats to the existence of the state, Pennsylvania managed to maintain the republican form of government and the separation of powers mandated in the state constitution.

Wolf has gone to extraordinary lengths to maintain his emergency powers despite repeated, bipartisan legislative action to stop him. As Calvin Coolidge noted, “Government control cannot be divorced from political control.” To those inclined to trust in government, that phrase sounds cynical, but Wolf demonstrates the truth of it. Given enough time, any lever of government control will become a partisan weapon. Wolf has thoroughly discredited the executive branch’s limited role in the amendment process. Perhaps the next amendment should aim at fixing that.
