Supreme Court hears cases on two Biden admin COVID-19 mandates, starts with case against OSHA

The Supreme Court on Friday is hearing oral arguments on two major Biden administration efforts to increase the country's vaccination rate against COVID-19 -- starting with the mandate requiring large-scale employers to require workers to be vaccinated or tested.

The case is the National Federation of Independent Business, et al., Applicants v. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, et al.

Justice Amy Coney Barrett asked Scott Keller, the solicitor general of Texas and the attorney arguing against the federal vaccine-or-test mandate, about his objections to the vaccine requirements.

The Trump-appointed justice asked Keller whether he is arguing the federal government's power is overly broad and if OSHA could require it for high risk areas like dentistry, meatpacking, healthcare.
