SALT LAKE CITY (September 17, 2021) – Governor Spencer J. Cox and Lieutenant Governor Deidre Henderson unite in legislative leadership and join President J. Stuart Adams and President Brad Wilson against blatant federal mandates and overbreadth Regarding President Biden mandate on COVID-19 vaccines:
âThe president’s unilateral decision to force American companies to impose COVID-19 vaccines as a condition of employment goes well beyond his authority. Not only does this mandate violate its previous promises, but this declaration violates the principles and processes that are the foundation of good government. As elected officials, we will not turn a blind eye to this seizure of power and will do our part to ensure that the principles of the separation of powers and individual freedom are respected.
âWe reaffirm our continued support for the vaccination effort. Vaccines have proven to be the single most effective step we can take to reduce the pressure on our hospitals and save lives. However, requiring employers to impose these decisions on their employees is not the role of government and should not become the new precedent. ”
