Statement from NYSYR Chairman Peter Giunta on SCOTUS ruling to block Biden vaccine mandate

By January 13, 2022Statements

Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States confirms that private sector vaccine mandates enacted by executive decree are illegal and have no standing without legislative action.  It makes clear that President Biden, Governor Hochul, Mayor Adams, and other executives like them throughout the country who enacted similar private sector vaccine mandates must now rescind their ill-conceived decrees.  We know which party stood to fight for our rights and we know which party waivered in defense of our rights — so if legislative bodies at any level of government choose to enact private sector vaccine mandates into law, then let them.  The voters won’t forget which side chose to surrender our medical freedom, and they’ll act at the ballot box in November.
