Forty-six (46) Republican Senators and 139 Republicans in the House of Representatives have filed a "friend of the court" amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in the upcoming case challenging the Biden administration's vaccine mandates for private companies.
The Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments Friday on two federal policies: a vaccine-or-test mandate for workers at large employers (with more than 100 employees), and a vaccine mandate for health care workers at facilities that receive federal funding.
The brief supports the lawsuit filed by 26 industry associations challenging the mandates. It urges the Court to find the mandates unconstitutional.
The members state the following in the brief:
“Congressional members have an interest in the powers they delegate to agencies not being abused—the legislative authority vested in the federal government belongs to Congress, not the Executive branch. In this case, the promulgation by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration of a sweeping, nationwide vaccine mandate on businesses intrudes into an area of legislative concern far beyond the authority of the agency. And it does so with a mandate enacted through OSHA’s seldom-used ‘emergency temporary standard’ provision that allows for bypass of notice and comment rule-making under certain circumstances."46 Republican Senators and 139 members of the House of Representatives
