The U.S. Senate Votes to Block Biden Administration’s Private Employer Vaccine Mandate

| Dec 09, 2021

The Senate voted to block the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s vaccine-or-test mandate announced in early November. Two Democratic Senators joined 50 Republican Senators to pass the measure with a vote of 52 to 48. The resolution will likely not pass in the Democratic-controller House of representatives. The OSHA emergency temporary standard would require workers at private companies with 100 or more employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine or take tests weekly. The mandate has had setbacks in federal court and faces legal challenges in several states. AAHOA is monitoring the situation and will keep members apprised of the latest developments.
