State Rep. Ken Borton, R-Gaylord, today issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court stayed the Biden administration’s emergency mandate requiring workers at large employers to be vaccinated or regularly tested for COVID-19:
“The Biden administration’s mandate was flawed from the beginning, and the Supreme Court rightly shut it down. With this unilateral order from a bureaucratic agency, the federal government tried to crack down on workers over their personal decisions by cracking down on their employers — putting both working families and businesses in a tight spot. Michigan families should be free to choose whether to get vaccinated without the government cutting off their livelihoods.”
State Rep. Ken Borton, of Gaylord, joined other House Appropriations Committee members today in advancing a budget plan that provides needed tax relief, makes crucial investments in public services such as roads and schools, and pays off debt.
