U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) blocked the Biden Administration's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Emergency Temporary Standard requiring private employers with more than 100 employees to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine or weekly testing.
"I am relieved the U.S. Supreme Court rightfully has struck down President Biden's unconstitutional mandate on workers and job creators, protecting Americans' fundamental rights," said Congresswoman Walorski. "The administration's mandate on private employers clearly trampled on Americans' liberties, and it would have been a disaster as we face mounting inflation, supply chain, and workforce crises. Northern Indiana is home to a robust manufacturing and small business community that feeds and powers our nation. Today the Supreme Court upheld these Hoosiers' vital right to work and provide for their families."
