Huizenga Cosponsors Measure to Nullify Biden Vaccine Mandate on Businesses

Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (R-MI) announced his support for using the Congressional Review Act to nullify President Biden’s Vaccine Mandate on businesses.

The resolution is in response to the Biden Administration formally releasing details on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Emergency Temporary Standard, which mandates vaccination requirements for employees at private businesses with more than 100 employees. The rule will affect more than 80 million Americans and impose $14,000 fines on businesses or persons who do not comply.

“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.”

Full text of the resolution can be found here. Senator Mike Braun (R-IN) has also introduced companion legislation in the Senate that has support of all 50 Republican Senators.
