Guthrie Responds to Supreme Court Rulings on President Biden’s Overreaching Vaccine Mandates

Washington, January 14, 2022 | S.K. Bowen (202-225-3501)

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02) released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on President Biden’s vaccine mandates on health care workers and workers at private businesses with 100 employees or more. 

“I’m happy to see the Supreme Court strike down President Biden’s private employer vaccine mandate that would have impacted 84 million Americans. The Biden Administration overstepped its authority, and Kentuckians should not be forced to choose between their livelihood and a vaccine they do not think is best for them, especially as we are facing workforce shortages across industries.

“While the Supreme Court’s decision is a win for workers at private businesses with 100 employees or more, its ruling to allow the vaccine mandate for health care workers to move forward is disappointing for our health care heroes and the patients they serve. This overreaching mandate could result in the loss of millions of health care workers and cause delays in health care services for Kentuckians most in need.  I believe Americans should make the decision that’s best for them with COVID-19 vaccines and will continue to fight against President Biden’s one-size-fits-all vaccine mandates,” said Guthrie.


  • Guthrie signed on to an Amicus Brief filed by members of both the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate urging the U.S. Supreme Court to rule against the OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard.
  • Guthrie cosponsored a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to protect health care workers from President Biden’s vaccine mandate.
  • Guthrie cosponsored a Congressional Review Act resolution to nullify President Biden’s vaccine mandates on businesses with 100 employees or more.
  • Guthrie cosponsored the Justice for All Businesses (JAB) Act to prevent OSHA from being able to implement the vaccine mandate on businesses with at least 100 employees by prohibiting funding for drafting, implementing, or enforcing the Vaccine-and-Testing Emergency Temporary Standard from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and preventing the collection of fines for not complying with the rule.
