House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: May 14, 2020 11:51 AM
From: Representative Cris Dush
To: All House members
Subject: The Free Exercise of Enumerated Rights
Our constituents as well as citizens from around the country are today demonstrating they have the ability, during an epidemic or other such emergency, to conduct themselves in a way which can preserve the public peace and safety during a global crisis.  Yet we have seen the tendency of government to use a piece of legislation which was passed nearly one hundred years ago to treat The People who hired them treat The People as something other than responsible citizens.  The administration has used that piece of legislation to institute policies which infringe upon the rights of these good people and use the force of government to threaten and intimidate them to keep them from taking care of their families, property, health and the exercise of their sovereign and constitutionally enumerated rights.

Therefore, I intend to introduce legislation that will amend the Administrative Code of 1929 (Code) to add a new Article (To be placed at the beginning of the Act to establish it’s primacy in the Code) which will establish that nothing which follows in the Code shall provide or be construed to provide authority of any branch (legislative, executive or judicial) of the government nor any department therein, nor any political sub-division or department therein to suspend, abridge or otherwise infringe upon the free exercise of any enumerated right within the Constitutions of Pennsylvania or the United States.
