Gosar Introduces Resolution to Terminate the COVID-19 National Emergency Act

Big Idea

  • Representative Gosar introduces resolution to terminate the COVID-19 Emergency Declaration Act
  • More than a year has passed since the first declaration of the COVID-19  Emergency Act
  • Cases are falling, vaccine rates are rising and states are reopening
  • It is overdue for Congress to consider the current merit of the emergency declaration
  • Read more...

 

This week, I also issued a resolution to terminate the COVID-19 emergency declaration issued on March 13, 2020 under the authority of the National Emergencies Act (NEA). 

Emergency powers were created to give the executive branch flexibility to respond to a range of crises facing the United States. Importantly, emergency declarations require Congress to meet every six months to consider whether the emergency should be extended or terminated.

More than a year has passed since the declaration of the COVID-19 emergency, yet Congress has failed to consider whether the emergency should continue. With cases falling, vaccine rates rising, and states reopening, it is long overdue for Congress to consider the merit of the emergency declaration.  

My resolution simply requires that Congress do its job and formally debate on terminating the emergency declaration, as required by the law.
