GOVERNOR ABBOTT BANS ALL EMPLOYER VACCINE MANDATES
On Monday, Texas GOP governor Greg Abbott, who had already banned vaccine mandates from governmental entities, went further, issuing an executive order entirely banning vaccine mandates in the state by employers, including private employers…:
No entity in Texas can compel receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine by any individual, including an employee or a consumer, who objects to such vaccination for any reason of personal conscience, based on a religious belief, or for medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19. I hereby suspend all relevant statutes to the extent necessary to enforce this prohibition…
He also pointed out that he had previously issued executive orders to bar “governmental entities and certain others from imposing COVID- 19 vaccine mandates or requiring vaccine passports,” but in “yet another instance of federal overreach, the Biden Administration is now bullying many private entities into imposing COVID-19 vaccine mandates, causing workplace disruptions.”…
“Abbott also called on the Texas state Legislature to pass a law with the same effect. The executive order would be rescinded upon the passage of such legislation, the governor’s office said,” CNN reported
In September, President Biden attacked Abbott and Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis…
Biden started by boasting, “We’ve made enormous progress against the virus through the summer….That’s why the actions I proposed on vaccines last week are so critical…”
He continued, “…The governors of Florida and Texas are doing everything they can to undermine the life-saving requirements that I’ve proposed.”
