Federal Vaccine Mandate struck down

The BBC reports:

The Supreme has blocked President Joe Biden’s rule requiring workers at large companies to be vaccinated or masked and tested weekly.

The justices at the nation’s highest said the mandate exceeded the Biden administration’s authority.

Separately they ruled that a more limited vaccine mandate could stand for staff at government-funded healthcare facilities.

This is totally unsurprising. The powers of the President don’t extend to ordering private businesses to do vaccine mandates.

If you want to implement a vaccine mandate, you should pass a specific law authorising it, as they did in NZ.
