(AUGUSTA, ME) – Within hours of Governor Mills’ announcement that she would mandate that all employees of health care agencies in Maine submit to a vaccine against COVID-19 or have their employment terminated, Senate Republicans began drafting and submitting emergency legislation to reverse the Governor’s order.
Assistant Senate Republican Leader Matt Pouliot: “Once again, Governor Mills has taken unilateral action restricting the liberties of Maine citizens without so much as notifying the Legislature of her intent. The response and outrage that we are hearing from our constituents is clear and impassioned. We cannot sit idly by while state government again imposes its will on private citizens, businesses, and organizations.”
