Tester Statement Ahead of Congressional Review Act Vote on Private Business Vaccine Mandate

U.S. Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement ahead of the vote on a Congressional Review Act resolution opposing the Occupational Safety and Health Administration rule mandating coronavirus vaccinations for private businesses with more than 100 employees:

“Over the past few months, I’ve repeatedly heard concerns from Montana’s small business and community leaders about the negative effect the private business vaccine mandate will have on their bottom lines and our state’s economy. That’s why I intend to join a bipartisan majority of my colleagues in defending Montana jobs and small businesses against these burdensome regulations. I strongly urge every eligible Montanan to get vaccinated as soon as possible so we can end this pandemic once and for all.”
