WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Mike Gallagher today released the following statement after the Supreme Court blocked enforcement of President Biden’s vaccine mandate on private businesses in the U.S.
“President Biden’s sweeping health mandate on private employers was a gross abuse of federal power that would have crushed businesses already struggling from the ongoing workforce crisis. The Supreme Court’s decision to strike down this effort is a massive win for freedom and rightly recognizes that a President’s authorities are not limitless.”
In November of 2021, Gallagher introduced
a Congressional Review Act resolution that would have nullified the mandate. He also joined more than 100 of his colleagues in December in calling on Speaker Pelosi
to take legislative steps to overturn the mandate.
