LaMalfa Responds to Biden Vaccine Mandate

(Chico, CA) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after the Biden Administration announced a vaccine mandate for federal employees, contractors, teachers in in every Head Start program, and all health care workers at federally funded hospitals. Additionally, any company with more than 100 employees must require vaccines or weekly tests. 

Rep. LaMalfa said, “This mandate is blatantly unconstitutional. Presidents cannot make up laws and impose fines because they want citizens and companies to do their bidding. Laws are made by Congress, not Presidential fiat. The government should leave medical decisions to individuals and their doctors to discuss their specific benefits and risk factors. Your individual medical information or immunization status is not the government’s business.   

Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
