Biden administration’s vaccine mandate is under the lawsuit, again.

Tennessee’s attorney general, Herbert H. Slatery III has filed a lawsuit challenging the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private-sector employees, arguing the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) lacks the authority to issue it.

Six other Attorneys General from (Kentucky, Idaho, Kansas, Ohio, Oklahoma, and West Virginia) are with him to file a lawsuit at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

The Biden administration released a new regulation on Thursday, requiring all companies with 100 or more employees to mandate vaccines or weekly testing for all workers.

Slatery said:

“As we anticipated, the mandate asserts an unprecedented expansion of emergency regulatory powers by a federal agency … Its scope and breadth is only exceeded by its length (about 500 pages). It also fails to consider the many steps already taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by individuals, employers, and our state.”

Despite warnings from attorneys general across the country about the legality of a vaccine mandate, the Biden administration issued the emergency temporary standard through OSHA.

In their petition, the coalition challenges the legality of the Biden Administration’s emergency temporary standard and asks the Sixth Circuit to review the validity of the mandate, arguing that OSHA lacks statutory and constitutional authority to issue it.

Following the announcement of the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate, The Daily Wire filed a lawsuit against the administration.

Jeremy Boreing, co-founder and co-CEO of The Daily Wire said:

“We’re not the enforcement arm of the federal government. Forcing Americans to choose between their livelihoods and their freedom is a grotesque abuse of power and we won’t be a party to it,”

“We will not incur the cost of implementing this testing regime. We will not incur the liability of inserting ourselves into the private health decisions and information of our employees. Our company was founded to stand against tyranny, and we will.”

The Daily Wire is one of America’s fastest-growing conservative media companies and counter-cultural outlets for news, opinion, and entertainment. 

On Saturday, an emergency stay was issued against the mandate by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit
