Oroho Says Democrats’ Legislation Ends Public Health Emergency in Name Only

Senator Steven Oroho said a bill (A-5777) that Governor Phil Murphy and Democratic legislative leaders have proclaimed would end the public health emergency in effect since last March would do so in name only.

Under legislation proposed by legislative Democrats, Governor Murphy would be given authorization to perpetuate executive orders and restrictions imposed during the public health emergency, including mask and social distancing mandates, until 2022. (New Jersey Office of the Governor/YouTube)

“Frankly, this legislation has to be some kind of joke,” said Oroho (R-24). “It ends the public health emergency in name only while allowing Governor Murphy to perpetuate until 2022 executive orders and unnecessary restrictions that should no longer be valid once the public health emergency has ended. Democrats shouldn’t try to fool people with this sleight of hand. We should end this nonsense immediately and rescind all of the overbearing executive orders as we’ve demanded for months.”
