U.S. Representative Tracey Mann (R-KS) introduced the Stop Vaccine Mandates Act in the U.S. House of Representatives. This legislation prohibits the Occupational Safety and Health Administration from mandating that private employers require their employees to be vaccinated.
“It’s simple – those who want to receive the vaccine should have the ability to do so,” said Rep. Mann. “If someone doesn’t want to, that is a decision they have the right to make. It is not the government’s place to dictate that choice.”
Rep. Mann’s legislation follows President Biden’s recent executive order mandating all federal employees to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and his directive requiring all employers of businesses with 100 or more employees to mandate the vaccine.
“The Biden Administration’s proposed rule not only tramples on the rights of free Americans, but it forces private businesses to impose this crooked mandate,” said Rep. Mann. “My bill prohibits OSHA from implementing such a rule and protects the rights of the American people.”
Last month, Rep. Mann also sent a letter to President Biden, urging him to rescind his nursing home vaccine mandate that would result in nursing home labor shortages and residents receiving lower-quality care. Rep. Mann will continue to oppose any Federal mandate of the COVID-19 vaccine.
