Federal vaccine and testing mandate may provide cover for businesses - Shipan

September 15, 2021 Washington Post

President Biden's recent COVID-19 vaccine and testing mandate for private businesses has received pushback, but Charles Shipan says some small businesses are welcoming the move.

"The reality is there are a number of businesses that are wanting the government to step in. This gives them the cover to do what they want to do anyway," he said. "This is a break from what presidential power has done in the past. That doesn't mean it's necessarily outside the boundaries of what presidents have the power to do."
