Washington, D.C. - Congressman David B. McKinley, P.E. (WV-01) issued a statement following today’s United States Supreme Court ruling that blocked the Biden Administration’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate on private businesses.

“The Supreme Court decision to block the most egregious part of the Biden Administration’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate on private businesses is good news for freedom and bad news for the Biden Administration’s government-knows-best agenda,” said McKinley.

“The Covid-19 vaccine continues to be an important and effective tool delivering relief from the deadly pandemic. But individuals should make that decision without heavy-handed government mandates getting in the way,” said McKinley.

“It is disappointing, however, that the Court was not consistent in its ruling, permitting the vaccine mandate for health care workers to go into effect,” said McKinley.
