Republicans brought the repeal to the Senate floor under the “Congressional Review Act,” which allows Congress to review executive orders of the president. Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., who sponsored the proposal, said the mandate was an example of a “heavy hand of the government” that is hurting businesses.

The Biden administration’s mandate requires private companies with 100 or more employees to ensure their employees are vaccinated against COVID-19 or undergo routine testing. Firms that do not comply face heavy fines.

The mandate prompted immediate legal challenges from several states, as well as from business and religious groups. Last month, a federal appeals court granted a temporary moratorium on enforcement of the mandate pending the outcome of the trial.

Even after Senate approval, the GOP-backed resolution is unlikely to reverse the mandate. The Democrat-controlled House is not expected to take the measure and will veto the bill if President Biden approves Congress. Click here for more on our Top Story,
