Rep. Joe Emrick to Reintroduce Registration Law Bill
Rep. Joe Emrick (R-Northampton) has sent a memo to his House colleagues stating his intention to reintroduce HB 2101 from last session. In his memo he notes that there has been significant discussions and negotiations with interested parties, which resulted in a unanimous vote in the House. The bill advanced to within a final Senate vote of getting to the Governor last fall, but did not receive that final vote, so the process must start over.
- Members are encouraged to reach out to their own state Representatives and request that they cosponsor the new bill, which will have a new number when it is introduced, in the next couple of weeks. We are looking for prompt movement again in the House, as we simultaneously work in the Senate to ensure that the bill gets the final vote and to the Governor as quickly as possible.
House and Senate Announce Committee Chairs for 2021-22, Hold Organizational meetings
The state House and Senate reorganized for the new session this month, after a tumultuous Swearing In day on January 7, with Senate Republicans refusing to seat a Democrat over challenged vote tallies, leading to new President Pro Tempore Jake Corman (R-Centre) taking the gavel from Lt. Gov. John Fetterman for the second time in his tenure, and both House and Senate Republicans vowing to continue the scrutiny of election procedures in Pennsylvania. Both chambers then recessed for two weeks, and returned in late January to begin the people’s business. The first step in that process is the designation of committee chairs and rosters.
Both Chambers Approve Proposed Constitutional Amendments to Limit Executive Power in Emergency Declarations
The House and Senate approved companion legislation to limit executive power through constitutional amendment.
“House Bill 55 would improve cooperation between the executive branch and the Legislature in responding to emergencies by limiting the length of emergency disaster declarations unless approved by the General Assembly,” bill sponsor Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) said.
The measure would ensure residents have a greater influence on emergency declarations by limiting declarations to 21 days. The declaration could be extended with approval of the House and Senate. Currently, a governor’s emergency declaration can last up to 90 days and be renewed by the governor indefinitely.
“What we have seen over nearly a year is one person making all the decisions, which impact the nearly 13 million residents of the Commonwealth, in regard to the state’s response to the pandemic,” Grove said. “The only input the Legislature was permitted to have in the matter were bills, most of which were vetoed by the governor, in response to actions he already took. The General Assembly should not be limited to being a reactionary board that merely attempts to advise the governor on actions he unilaterally decided to take.”
Also, on June 26, the House State Government Committee approved the Senate companion bill to Grove’s bill. In addition to limiting the timeframe of a declaration, Senate Bill 2 also would clarify that the Legislature is not required to present to the governor for his approval a resolution ending an emergency declaration.
The General Assembly approved last session a similar bill. Should House Bill 55 or Senate Bill 2 be approved again this session, the question would be put forth to voters, potentially as soon as the primary election.

Two Legislators Pass Away in January
Two popular Republican state legislators died tragically this month.
- State Rep. Mike Reese (R-Westmoreland) died suddenly on January 2, after suffering from an apparent brain aneurysm, his office said in a Facebook post. Reese was 42. First elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 2008, Reese was elected House Republican Caucus Secretary in 2019 and was elevated to serve as caucus chairman for the 2021-2022 legislative session. Reese was set to be sworn in for his seventh term in office on Tuesday, Jan. 5. House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre) offered his condolences to Reese’s family, while calling Reese a “model legislator.”
- State Sen. Dave Arnold (R-Lebanon) died January 17 after a battle with brain cancer, his office announced in a statement. He was 49. Arnold, who represented the 48th Senatorial District, was sworn into office in January of last year after winning a special election to fill a vacant seat. “We join the residents of the 48th Senatorial District and all Pennsylvanians in mourning the passing of Senator Dave Arnold. We lost a good man and committed leader much too soon,” Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman (R-Centre) and Senate Majority Leader Kim Ward (R-Westmoreland) said in a joint statement.
Prior to his time in the Pennsylvania General Assembly, Arnold had served for 14 years as the Lebanon County District Attorney and was elected to serve as the president of the Pennsylvania District Attorney’s Association from 2016 to 2017. During his time in the legislature, Arnold sponsored legislation to increase penalties for those convicted of child pornography charges after his predecessor in the Senate, former Sen. Mike Folmer, was arrested on child pornography charges.
