Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik today joined her colleagues, led by Rep. Fred Keller (R-PA), in introducing a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to nullify Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) “emergency” rule requiring private companies to enforce a COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
“The Biden Administration’s authoritarian vaccine mandate would impose government control into the private lives of millions of American citizens, harming our nation’s workers, employers, and small businesses,” Stefanik said. “This is nothing more than an authoritarian power grab that will only exacerbate the workforce and supply chain crisis Democrats’ failed policies already created. I’m proud to stand up for both workers and employers to keep this massive government overreach out of the lives of our American citizens.”
Stefanik condemned the OSHA “emergency” rule when it was released.
On November 12th, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued an opinion blocking OSHA from implementing their COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
