U.S. Supreme Court rules on Biden’s vaccine authorization — Action News Now

In a 6-3 decision, the court blocks OSHA from carrying out the White House’s Covid-19 vaccination mission.


The U.S. Supreme Court has stopped enforcing the Biden administration’s Covid-19 spying requirements for businesses with 100 or more employees, introduced as an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rule.

The 6-3 decision was announced Thursday, with liberal Justices Breyer, Kagan and Sotomayor dissenting.


Announced by President Joe Biden in September but not finalized until two months later, the mandate requires businesses to ensure their employees are vaccinated or tested at their own expense each week. It applies to about 84 million American workers and overrides any state law to the contrary.

“OSHA has never imposed such an authorization before. Neither has Congress,” Court on page 30 View, accepting the plaintiff’s claim that it exceeded the agency’s statutory authority and was otherwise unlawful.


“Agreeing that applicants may win, we approve their applications and follow the rules,” the court said.
