“This past week the White House announced a series of new, aggressive COVID-19 policies. In addition to the new OSHA emergency standard requiring large employers to test or vaccinate their employees, the Biden Administration also announced that it would require Medicare and Medicaid service providers to mandate vaccination of their workers. This too may raise legal issues, but not necessarily the broad constitutional claims identified by some commentators. This post aims to explore some of those issues.” (09/12/21)
