All of the Republicans in the U.S. Senate challenge the vaccine mandate

The Oklahoma attorney general has also challenged the mandate

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator James Lankford, of Oklahoma, joined the 49 other Republicans in the Senate to file a formal challenge against President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate under the Congressional Review Act (CRA).

The move to overturn President Biden’s vaccine mandate for private employers is now guaranteed a vote on the Senate floor.

A vote could happen as soon as early December.

“President Biden is playing a game of chicken with Oklahomans’ lives and livelihoods, said Sen. Lankford. “No one should have to choose between their job and their personal health care decisions.”

President Biden announced the vaccine mandates for companies with more than 100 workers in September.
