Senate passes resolution to scrap mask mandate for public travel
(Worthy News) – A Republican-backed resolution to end the federal mask mandate on public transportation cleared the Senate on Tuesday.
The resolution passed 57–40 with bipartisan support but faces significant barriers to becoming law due to the Biden administration’s veto threat and uncertainty over whether Speaker Nancy Pelosi will even allow a vote on the measure in the House.
“Today, the Senate said enough is enough and sent a message to unelected government bureaucrats to stop the anti-science nanny-state requirement of travel mask mandates,” Sen. Rand Paul said in a statement following the vote. “Since March 2020, unelected bureaucrats have incessantly declared that we should ‘follow the science.’ But the same bureaucrats continue to defy science by imposing an ineffective and restrictive mask mandate for individuals traveling on public transit and airplanes.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
