Challenge to Biden’s vaccine mandate surfaces from Kansas AG Derek Schmidt

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is warning President Joe Biden he’ll take legal action if he follows through with a new federal vaccine mandate.

Schmidt said Thursday that he joined 23 other states’ attorneys general in writing a letter to the president warning of a lawsuit. The group disagrees with Biden’s plan to make any large employers and healthcare providers require workers to either get vaccinated or get weekly tests.
