Governor Stitt Announces Federal Lawsuits to Fight Biden Administration's Vaccine Mandates

Friday, November 05, 2021

Governor Kevin Stitt issued the following statement after Attorney General John O’Connor filed lawsuits on behalf of the State of Oklahoma to fight back against the Biden administration unilaterally imposing unlawful vaccine mandates on federal contractors and federally contracted employees as well as private sector employees:

“I promised Oklahomans that we would sue the Biden administration for its unlawful vaccine mandates as soon as the rules were made public and that is exactly what we’ve done.

“I am proud to have Attorney General John O’Connor and the Legislature on our side fighting back against the constant federal overreach coming from the Biden White House.

“We’ve asked the courts to immediately intervene and stop President Biden from demanding that American citizens comply with the federal government’s order to get a vaccine to keep their jobs.

“Forcing people out of work while businesses across the country are already struggling to find enough employees and our supply chain is experiencing historic disruptions proves that President Biden is totally out of touch with reality.

“I will keep fighting to protect Oklahomans’ individual freedoms, and this mandate will not stand.”
