Today the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration’s OSHA vaccine mandate for large businesses. Multiple parties are challenging the OSHA mandate, and the various cases have been consolidated into a single case. Kris Kobach, candidate for Kansas Attorney General, said the decision is a win for North Dakota companies that he represents.
“This is a huge victory for the North Dakota businesses and employees that I am representing. It is also a victory for the people of every state, including Kansas.” Kobach said. “The Supreme Court has done its job well, preventing the Biden administration from exceeding the boundaries of federal law in its desire to force vaccinations upon the American people. When I am Kansas AG, our state will lead the charge in challenging future Biden administration actions that are illegal or unconstitutional.”
The Court issued a stay of an “emergency temporary standard” OSHA rule mandating large employers require vaccinations or demand their employees submit to frequent COVID testing. The Court ruled that the challengers to the OSHA rule will likely prevail and returned the case to the Sixth Circuit Court for judicial review.
