Following the President’s Announcement of the End of the Pandemic, Guest Calls for the End of the National Emergency Declaration


Washington, D.C. – Congressman Michael Guest (MS-03) joined Congressman Tim Burchett (TN-02) and 15 other Republicans in a letter to President Biden requesting the termination of the COVID-19 national emergency declaration.

“The President made it clear that the pandemic is over in his interview on ‘60 Minutes.’ It appears that the only reason the President would continue this national emergency declaration is to wield it as a tool to push through his own agenda,” Guest said. “The pandemic is behind us — it’s time we move forward by ending the emergency declaration.”

“In a Sept. 18, 2022 episode of ‘60 Minutes’ you stated that ‘the pandemic is over.’” wrote the Members. “We firmly agree with this statement and request you terminate the national emergency concerning the COVID-19 outbreak declared in Proclamation 9994.”

“Under the emergency declaration, the federal government is estimated to have spent upwards of $10 trillion, resulting in an economic crisis, record inflation, and contributing to our nearly $31 trillion national debt,” the letter continues. “While Americans continue to deal with the lasting effects of COVID-19, the powers provided to the federal government by Proclamation 9994 are unnecessary.”
