AUSTIN (KAMR/KCIT) — The Office of the Governor said that Governor Greg Abbott is challenging OSHA’s vaccine mandate.
According to a press release from the governor’s office, Gov. Abbott filed a petition in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit urging the court to vacate OSHA’s mandate and confirm that his Executive Order GA-40 is not preempted.
“This Court should vacate OSHA’s Mandate, which ‘runs afoul of the statute from which it draws its power and likely, violates the constitutional structure that safeguards our collective liberty,'” said Gov. Abbott in the petition.
