FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Attorney General Daniel Cameron joined a coalition of 27 attorneys general in a letter to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), asking the agency to withdraw its COVID-19 vaccine mandate for large employers.

The letter follows a 6-3 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court last week, which halted the Biden Administration’s OSHA vaccine mandate in response to a legal challenge brought by AG Cameron and other state attorneys general, in addition to trade groups, nonprofits, and private businesses.

Despite the Supreme Court’s ruling, OSHA has not withdrawn the emergency temporary standard (ETS), which would require vaccination for tens of millions of employees across the country.

In the letter, the coalition maintains that the current OSHA mandate is unlawful because the agency does not have the authority to issue a broad vaccine mandate for larger employers.
