Congressman Andy Biggs Introduces Legislation to Prohibit Businesses That Received Relief Funding from Mandating COVID-19 Vaccination

August 27, 2021
Press Release

Today, Congressman Andy Biggs, along with 11 of his colleagues, introduced legislation prohibiting businesses that received federal COVID-19 relief funds from mandating vaccination of their employees:

“Employers should not be meddling in the personal, private health care decisions of their employees by mandating the COVID-19 vaccine. Many of these companies turned to the federal government for support during 2020’s tough economic times, and that support was provided by American taxpayers. Now companies are bullying those same tax-paying employees into taking a vaccine that they may not be comfortable with. My bill will stop those companies from enforcing those mandates by requiring them to return the relief funds they received if they don’t allow their employees to make their own personal health care decisions.”  - Congressman Andy Biggs

Co-sponsors: Rep. Ralph Norman (SC-05), Rep. Tom Tiffany (WI-07), Rep. Alex Mooney (WV-02, Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01), Rep. Jody Hice (GA-10), Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL-01), Rep. Thomas Massie (KY-04), Rep. Greg Steube (FL-17), Rep. Brian Mast (FL-18), Rep. Jeff Duncan (SC-03), and Rep. Madison Cawthorn (NC-11)
