Guthrie Introduces Bill to End the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02) today introduced the Pandemic is Over Act, a bill to end the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE).

“The COVID-19 pandemic is over. Despite President Biden admitting this in September, his administration just authorized the 12th extension of the COVID-19 public health emergency. It is long overdue for President Biden to end the COVID-19 public health emergency and relinquish the emergency powers that he just renewed again. President Biden’s inaction and lack of transparency on this are unacceptable. I introduced the Pandemic is Over Act to prevent any more delays by forcing the Biden Administration to finally release and execute a plan that my House Republican colleagues and I have been repeatedly pressing for to unwind the PHE,” said Guthrie.

Cosponsors: Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Congressman Neal Dunn, M.D. (FL-02), Congressman Morgan Griffith (VA-09), Congressman Bob Latta (OH-05), Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (TX-26), Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. (IN-08), Congressman Greg Pence (IN-06), Congressman Earl L. “Buddy” Carter (GA-01), Congressman John Joyce, M.D. (PA-13), Congressman John Curtis (UT-03), Congressman Richard Hudson (NC-09), Congressman Dan Crenshaw (TX-02), Congressman Gus Bilirakis (FL-12), and Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03).
