Last Friday Arkansas’ Attorney General’s office joined a coalition of states led by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt challenging the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate for private employers.

Last week the Labor Department issued an emergency rule requiring employers with 100 or more workers to get the COVID-19 vaccine or get tested for the disease each week. According to the Daily Signal, the Biden Administration intends to enforce the rule through OSHA.

Missouri and ten other states — including Arkansas — responded by filing a lawsuit in federal court calling the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate “unconstitutional, unlawful, and unwise.”

Besides Arkansas and Missouri, other states joining the lawsuit include Arizona, Nebraska, Montana, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Alaska, New Hampshire, and Wyoming.

Attorneys representing the Home School Legal Defense Association and the Christian Employers Alliance joined the lawsuit as well.
