Senators Regan and Ward, Representative Gleim Issue Statement on Department of Health Filing Suit against Carlisle Events

CARLISLE, PA – In response to the Pennsylvania Department of Health filing a lawsuit in Commonwealth Court against Carlisle Events, which is currently operating Spring Carlisle, one of their annual car shows, Senator Mike Regan (R-31), Senator Judy Ward (R-30), and Representative Barb Gleim (R-199) issued the following statement.

“The lack of clear and consistent guidance for employers and residents as we move through the Governor’s reopening process has led to frustration and anger. Common sense would suggest that – like outdoor recreation – outdoor sales and other events should be held to a different safety standard. The Governor sent a clear message about the ability to ignore his orders and safety precautions when he marched through the streets of Harrisburg. Instead of working with an employer to further implement precautions and allow for this event to move forward in a county that is in the ‘green phase,’ the Wolf administration instead turns to the court to shut this employer down.”
