ICYMI: COVID-19 National Emergency Declaration Officially Terminated

(Washington, D.C., April 11, 2023) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. issued the following statement after his resolution terminating the COVID-19 National Emergency Declaration was signed into law:

“Finally, the COVID-19 emergency is over,” said Senator Marshall. “I am proud to have led this resolution that takes the supersized powers away from President Biden and ends the White House’s authoritarian control and unilateral spending decisions without Congressional consent. We’ve restored the balance of powers as our constitution outlines- emergency declarations were never supposed to be indefinite and used for political purposes. I’m grateful to have received bipartisan support from my colleagues in our efforts to do the right thing and terminate the COVID-19 National Emergency Declaration.”

Senator Marshall’s resolution to end the COVID-19 National State of Emergency passed the U.S. Senate on March 29 by a vote of 68-23. It had previously passed the Senate on two other occasions, once by a vote of 48-47 on March 3, 2022, and once by a vote of 62-36 on November 15, 2022.
