Sen. Braun introduced legislation for congressional disapproval of mandate
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Dec. 8, 2021) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), Indiana’s leading small business advocacy organization, thanks Senator Mike Braun for advocating on behalf of Indiana’s small businesses and leading the Congressional Review Act disapproving the Biden Administration’s vaccine and testing mandate. Sen. Braun introduced S.J.Res. 29, a joint resolution providing for congressional disapproval of the vaccine and testing mandate, which passed today (52-48), with bipartisan support.
“Small business owners in Indiana thank Senator Braun for his hard work and leadership in passing this legislation,” said Barbara Quandt, Indiana State Director. “Small businesses are working hard to get their businesses back to pre-crisis levels, despite ongoing challenges like the tight labor market and supply chain disruptions and Sen. Braun understands that this mandate will only exacerbate these issues.”
“As a business leader, Senator Braun understands the importance of owners having the freedom to decide what is best for their business,” said Kevin Kuhlman, Vice President of Federal Government Relations. “NFIB thanks Sen. Braun for his leadership on this issue.”
NFIB announced the legislation would be considered a Key Vote for the 117th Congress.
NFIB previously filed a legal challenge against OSHA’s emergency temporary standard, which would mandate businesses with 100 or more employees require workers to get the COVID-19 vaccine or undergo weekly testing and wear masks at work.
