Attorney General Cameron joins other AGs’ challenge of federal contractor vaccine mandate

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ/Press Release) – Attorney General Daniel Cameron and 20 other attorneys general sent a letter to President Biden challenging the administration’s mandatory vaccination requirement for federal contractors.

The attorneys general write in the letter that the mandate stands on shaky legal grounds, is propped up by inconsistent federal directives, and requires compliance on an unworkable timeline in the midst of a supply-chain crisis. The attorneys general strongly urge the administration to halt implementation of the mandate.

“The Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate for federal contractors places an increasing strain on businesses and agencies throughout the country at a time when they are already facing worker shortages and supply chain disruptions,” said Attorney General Cameron. “This policy encroaches on the prerogatives of countless Americans, and there are significant concerns with the legality and consistency of the mandate that must be addressed by the President.”

USASpending.gov shows that in fiscal year 2021, the federal government awarded $9.2 billion across 32,115 contracts for work done in Kentucky.

Attorney General Cameron joined the letter alongside attorneys general from Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
