Reno, NV – In response to the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate on private employers, Guy Nohra, Republican candidate for Governor, issued the following statement:

“Nevadans want a leader who will have their back, who will put party politics aside, and fight for their rights. That’s why I am calling on Governor Sisolak to file a lawsuit, immediately, against the Biden administration’s unlawful and unconstitutional vaccine mandate being pushed by officials who do not have to answer to the people.”

The rule, which was written and being implemented by the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, will affect nearly 84 million employees and 17 million health care workers.

Guy Nohra continued, “It’s very clear that whoever wrote this rule within the Biden administration has never run a business or signed a paycheck.” With Nevada’s unemployment rate still one of the highest in the country, Guy Nohra, who is a business man, understands the consequences, fines levied, and implementation of this rule will continue to hurt small and large businesses alike.

“Not only does this mandate trample on the rights of Nevadans, it will cause harmful consequences to our supply chain, our public safety, and to our workforce. On my watch as your Governor, we will push back with every constitutional means necessary against this egregious power grab,” Nohra stated.
