WASHINGTON, D.C. (WITN) – Senator Thom Tillis and 49 other Senate Republicans filed a formal challenge against President Biden’s vaccine mandate Wednesday under the Congressional Review Act.
The Congressional Review Act is a tool Congress can use to overturn executive branch rules.
A press release from Tillis’ office says the move to overturn Biden’s vaccine or test mandate for private employers is guaranteed a vote on the Senate floor as soon as early December.
The news comes as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration says it will temporarily not enforce the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
