Rep. Crawford Response to SCOTUS Ruling on Vaccine Mandates

1/13/2022

Washington – Representative Rick Crawford (AR-01) released the following statement in support of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to strike down a vaccine mandate for private American companies. 

“Today is a win not just for the thousands of Americans who would’ve been thrown out of work, but for the businesses who were set to lose a large portion of their workforce at a time where they are already struggling to fill positions. However, the work is far from over. The Court’s second decision today will mean more chaos for rural healthcare systems that already are facing small staff and limited resources,” said Rep. Crawford.

Rep. Crawford has supported the following efforts to strike down the vaccine mandate:

  • Amicus brief to SCOTUS regarding OSHA Vaccine Mandate – December 30, 2021
    • Argues that Congress did not give OSHA the authority to impose a vaccine mandate and urges SCOTUS to stay the mandate
  • Letter to VA regarding Vaccine Mandate – July 30, 2021
    • Opposes the July 26th announcement to make COVID-19 vaccinations mandatory for VA employees
  • H.R. 5450 – Blocking Biden’s Overreaching Vaccine Mandates Act – September 30, 2021
    • Prohibits the use of Federal funds to implement or enforce a COVID-19 vaccine mandate
  • Letter to DHS regarding CBP Vaccine Mandates – October 25, 2021
    • Asks for exemptions for CBP workers from the vaccine mandates
  • H.R. 5908 – Stop Vaccine Mandates – November 5, 2021
    • Rescinds E.O. 14042 and E.O. 14043 – the vaccine mandates
  • H.R. 5903 – HERD Act – November 5, 2021
    • Requires fully-vaccinated federal employees to return to providing in-person services to constituents. 
  • Letter to Biden regarding Vaccine Requirements at Border – November 11, 2021
    • Highlights inconsistencies with Biden’s new testing and vaccine requirements for travelers entering the US vs. the lack thereof for migrants crossing Border 
  • H.R. 5978 – November 15, 2021
    • To exempt Federal employees and contractors that are critical infrastructure workers from Federal COVID-19 vaccination mandates
  • H.J.Res. 65 – November 17, 2021
    • Joint Resolution to nullify OSHA’s emergency temporary standard mandating vaccines for private sector employees
