Nebraska Attorney General Ready to Challenge Federal Vaccine Warrants | Regional government
Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson expressed concern on Friday about pending federal COVID-19 vaccine warrants previously announced by the Biden administration and said his office “will be ready to take appropriate legal action. “if they are implemented.
“The attorney general is concerned that some or all of these federal warrants are illegal,” his office said in a press release.
Peterson and his team “plan to review them carefully as they become available,” the statement said.
Vaccination mandates announced earlier by the federal government would require companies with 100 or more employees to require their employees to be vaccinated or undergo regular COVID-19 testing; require most health care facilities with Medicaid or Medicare reimbursement to immunize all their employees; and mandate vaccinations for employees of companies that contract with the federal government.
