SALT LAKE CITY — Today, Utah Attorney General Sean D. Reyes issued this personal statement on the lawsuit regarding vaccine mandates for federal contract employees. This is in addition to the joint statement issued earlier.
“President Biden can act like an autocrat, but America is not a totalitarian state and he is not a king. He egregiously oversteps his authority here. And we will remind him of the constitutional limits to his power.
Today, we filed suit on President Biden’s mandate to federal contractors. We are prepared to fight all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary.
And if he makes good on his threat to impose a mandate on small businesses through OSHA, we will sue him again.
I am vaccinated. And I believe vaccines can be a powerful tool in the fight against COVID, especially for those without natural immunity.
But vaccines are purposely invasive and the choice to get one is extremely personal. No government body should be forcing that medical decision on its citizens.”
