The Family Foundation Applauds U.S. Supreme Court Decision Blocking Biden’s National Vaccine Mandate
LEXINGTON, KY – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate for businesses that employ 100+, supporting the legal filing made by The Family Foundation and its coalition of state family policy councils.
The Family Foundation’s legal brief, filed in N.F.I.B. v. D.O.L , opposed the Biden Administration’s illegal employee vaccine mandate and drew attention to its failure to properly consider religious freedom concerns.
“The Court was right to reign in the Biden Administration’s gross overreach and its shocking disregard for our constitutional freedoms,” said David Walls, The Family Foundation’s Executive Director. “The Family Foundation is proud to have joined with 30 family policy councils in challenging this gross overreach by unelected bureaucrats and thankful for this victory for Kentucky’s families. With this federal overreach curtailed, the Kentucky General Assembly has the opportunity to ensure all Kentuckians are protected. We are disappointed that the Court failed to reach the same conclusion for healthcare workers, many of whom are facing a crisis of conscience.”
The consolidated case, brought by a union of states and business industry groups, challenged the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) nationwide vaccine-or-testing rule for U.S. businesses with 100 or more employees.
In addition to The Family Foundation in Kentucky, other allied family policy organizations that signed on to the legal brief as amici curiae include: Nebraska Family Alliance, Cornerstone Policy Research of New Hampshire, Kansas Family Voice, Indiana Family Institute, Palmetto Family Council (South Carolina), Family Policy Institute of Washington, Center for Christin Virtue of Ohio, Montana Family Foundation, The Family Foundation of Virginia, Idaho Family Policy Center, Florida Family Policy Council, New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, Family Policy Alliance of New Jersey, Delaware Family Policy Council, North Dakota Family Alliance, Christian Civic League of Maine, Family Institute of Connecticut, Wisconsin Family Action, Texas Values, California Family Council, Massachusetts Family Institute, Michigan Family Forum, Louisiana Family Forum, Frontline Policy Council (Georgia), Minnesota Family Council, Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico, Pennsylvania Family Council, The Family Leader of Iowa, North Carolina Family Policy Council, and Family Policy Alliance.
