Treat says Oklahoma Senate Republicans support fight against Biden vaccine mandate
Oklahoma City – Oklahoma Senate Republicans support the effort to challenge the president’s overreaching vaccine mandate, said Senate President Pro Tempore Greg Treat, R-Oklahoma City.
Treat said Senate Republicans this year backed legislation and funding for a special unit in the Attorney General’s office to challenge and overturn federal overreach – like the president’s vaccine mandate. (https://www.city-sentinel.com/?s=vaccine+mandate )
In a statement sent to CapitolBeatOK.com and other news organizations, the Senate’s highest-ranking Republican said:
“Senate Republicans stand with Governor Stitt and Attorney General O’Connor in opposing the president’s vaccine mandate. The vaccines are safe and effective, but individuals should have the freedom to decide whether they get the shot. The vaccine mandate is a gross overreach by the Biden administration and exactly why Senate Republicans this year backed legislation and provided funding to the Attorney General’s office to challenge and overturn federal overreach.”
Treat concluded, “Oklahoma employers and employees can know the state Senate has their back and will join the challenge against this overreaching federal move and any others in the future.”
