MORE THAN HALF OF U.S. STATES ARE SUING TO STOP BIDEN’S COVID-19 VACCINE MANDATE

SOURCE: BUSINESS INSIDER
More than half of US states on Friday filed or joined lawsuits opposing President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for employees of large companies.

Twenty-six states cosigned four petitions, amounting to perhaps the most sweeping legal challenge to pandemic-era safety requirements since Biden took office. Three Democrat-led states are among the 26.

The lawsuits, filed in four federal appeals courts, take aim at Biden’s requirement that all companies with more than 100 employees mandate COVID-19 vaccines for their staff, or implement weekly testing.

“This mandate is unconstitutional, unlawful, and unwise,” said a lawsuit filed by Missouri and 10 other states in the US Court of Appeals for the Eight Circuit.

The states said in the filing that Biden’s mandate “will cause injuries and hardship to working families, inflict economic disruption and staffing shortages on the states and private employers, and impose even greater strains on struggling labor markets and supply chains.”

Biden’s mandate, which would affect about two of every three private-sector workers, was officially rolled out on Thursday. It is set to take effect January 4.
