Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (R-MI), called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to hold a vote to repeal President Biden’s mask mandate for air travel and mass transit. During his remarks on the House Floor, Huizenga noted the Senate passed bipartisan legislation on Tuesday to repeal this mandate. Video and text of Congressman Huizenga’s remarks are available below.
Madame Speaker I rise today to demand a vote on H.J. Res 72, a Congressional Review Act Resolution, that would end the CDC’s mask mandate for airlines, trains, buses, and other public transportation hubs.
Tuesday night, the Senate voted in a rare bipartisan manner to end these mandates in what even CNN called a bipartisan rebuke of the Biden Administration policy.
States and cities, big and small, across the country have ended or are in the process of ending their mask mandates at schools, basketball games, and even crowded restaurants.
Thousands of fans will pack arenas in the coming days to cheer on their teams during March Madness for example. At the games, they rightly won’t be required to wear a mask, but as soon as they step onto a plane, a bus, a train, or even a metro, unelected bureaucrats at the direction of President Biden have decreed that masks must be put on and must be worn.
It’s past time for this unscientific mask mandate to be ended. I am calling on Speaker Pelosi to hold a vote on repealing this mask mandate. Americans want their lives back and it’s time to vote!
