OKLAHOMA CITY – Senate President Pro Tempore Greg Treat, R-Oklahoma City, commented Thursday on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling rejecting the Biden administration’s vaccine and testing mandate for large employers.
“Although vaccines are safe and effective, the decision to get a vaccine should remain up to individuals to decide. The Supreme Court was right to reject the Biden administration’s vaccine and testing mandate for large businesses. It clearly was a case of federal overreach. After this court win, I am more confident that the decision the state Senate made to put $10 million in funding toward the Attorney General’s Office was the right move to fight federal overreach. We remain committed to resourcing the Attorney General’s Office to defend the rights of Oklahomans,” Treat said.
