House Republicans are set to officially declare the Covid-19 pandemic over as they meet this week to vote on multiple bills aimed at stripping Covid-era emergency policies, including voting in favor of the Pandemic is Over Act.
“BIG week in the GOP-led House this week!” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., wrote on Twitter Monday. “We’re eliminating authoritarian Democrat policies and officially declaring COVID IS OVER.”
Rep. Greene further announced that the Republican House Oversight Committee is scheduled to hold its first hearing aimed at “investigating the corruption surrounding COVID relief programs” Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. RSBN will carry the broadcast of this hearing LIVE.
According to Fox News, the House Rules Committee was scheduled to meet Monday to begin floor voting on four bills that would abolish the Covid emergencies extended for almost three years by the Biden administration.
One of the legislative proposals is a resolution introduced by Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., announcing the Covid national emergency declaration to be “hereby terminated,” the outlet added. According to Gosar, “There is no ongoing COVID-19 emergency to justify the continuation of the national emergency declaration.”
Similarly, the Pandemic is Over Act proposed earlier this month by Rep. Brett Guthrie, R-Ky., would terminate “the COVID-19 public health emergency declared on January 31, 2020.”
The Stopping Home Office Work’s Unproductive Problems Act, also referred to as the SHOW UP Act, introduced by Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., who chairs the House GOP’s oversight committee, would demand all federal agencies call back workers to their offices and reinstate the pre-Covid telework procedures, Fox News reported.
Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., also introduced the Freedom for Health Care Workers Act, preventing the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services from mandating federal healthcare workers to be vaccinated.
Republican lawmakers have recently questioned the safeness of the Covid vaccine and its possible dangerous side effects, per RSBN.
