Rubio, Scott, Colleagues Introduce Bill to Prevent Weaponization of OSHA

Feb 3, 2022 | Comunicados de Prensa

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rick Scott (R-FL), and colleagues introduced the OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard Clarification Act. Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision to strike down President Joe Biden’s overreaching and unconstitutional vaccine mandate on private businesses, this legislation would prevent further unlawful, sweeping mandates by clarifying the true scope of authority of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)’s emergency temporary standards. 
“President Biden turned OSHA into a weapon to force America to do what he wanted them to do,” Rubio said. “Our new bill will prevent this from ever happening again.”
“Hardworking Americans and job creators across the country watched in disgust last year as the Biden administration attempted to misuse a federal agency to impose an unconstitutional vaccine mandate on private businesses,” Scott said. “While we are thankful that the Supreme Court confirmed what my colleagues and I have been saying for months – that Joe Biden has no authority to tell Americans how to live their life and what health care decisions they must make – further action is clearly needed to make sure this never happens again. Today, I’m proud to lead my colleagues to introduce legislation that clarifies OSHA’s authority and prevents Joe Biden from using this agency as a political weapon. American jobs are on the line and we must do everything possible to protect our families and their ability to make a living.”
