Lucas Applauds Supreme Court Decision Blocking Biden’s Vaccine Mandate on Private Businesses

Washington, DC – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) today released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision on President Biden’s federal vaccine mandate on private businesses:

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling affirms what every Oklahoman has believed for months and what I’ve told my neighbors since the President’s executive order was drafted, President Biden’s federal vaccine mandate on private businesses was an egregious act of federal overreach. President Biden’s unconstitutional OSHA vaccine mandate was the last thing Main Street job creators and workers needed as America recovers from the economic effects of COVID, and now Oklahomans who work in the private sector will be able to make health care decisions for themselves,” said Congressman Lucas. “Just as I have done for the last two years, as our country has battled COVID-19, I continue to be a strong advocate of following the science and taking the necessary precautions- including encouraging my fellow Oklahomans to get vaccinated and boosted.”
