The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has announced that it has suspended the implementation and enforcement of President Biden’s vaccine mandate following the U.S. Court of Appeals Fifth Circuit ordering the mandate be halted until further notice.
Michigan Republican Congressmen John Moolenaar and Bill Huizenga support the order.
“President Biden’s vaccine mandate is unconstitutional, and the federal government has no business enforcing this executive overreach on businesses and workers," said Congressman John Moolenaar. "Businesses are already struggling with supply chain disruptions and a labor shortage – the vaccine mandate will only exacerbate those issues. I will continue to oppose this mandate until the courts, Congress, or the Biden Administration bring it to a permanent end."
“This mandate is an unconstitutional overreach by the Biden Administration,” said Congressman Bill Huizenga. “Congress has a responsibility to use the Congressional Review Act to place a check on the power of the Executive Branch and its legion of bureaucrats when it oversteps as the President and OSHA have clearly done here. Americans should have the choice to take the COVID-19 vaccine, not be forced by the federal government or lose their job.”
Earlier this month, Congressman Moolenaar introduced the No Vaccine Mandate Act. This legislation would prohibit the Department of Labor from using federal funds to administer a COVID-19 vaccine mandate should it be reinstated.
Meanwhile Huizenga cosponsored a measure today, Nov.18th that would nulify the Biden Administration order.
