Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) has introduced the Nullify the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Act to abolish the regulatory agency within the Department of Labor that is responsible for inspecting businesses with over 100 employees to determine if workers have been sufficiently jabbed as part of the Biden regime’s vaccine mandate.
In a statement, Biggs said, “OSHA’s existence is yet another example of the federal government creating agencies to address issues that are more appropriately handled by state governments and private employers.”
He added that “Arizona, and every other state, has the constitutional right to establish and implement their own health and safety measures, and is more than capable of doing so” and urged fellow Members of the House to “fight back against the bloated federal government and eliminate agencies that never should have been established in the first place.”
“I will not let OSHA push Arizona around with their bureaucratic regulations and urge my colleagues to support my effort to eliminate this unconstitutional federal agency,” concluded Biggs.

Speaking to Breitbart, Biggs added that “OSHA’s existence is yet another example of the federal government creating agencies to address issues that are more appropriately handled by state governments and private employers.”
The Biden regime’s vaccine mandate is set to begin on January 4, when employers will be forced to fire unvaccinated employees or face fines of $14,000 per employee who is resisting the controversial vaccines.
While Biggs’ solution may be unlikely to gain traction, unless Republicans retake the House in 2022, Senate Republicans announced another, more immediate solution immediately after Democrats faced large losses in Virginia and across the country earlier this week.
“I hope President Biden was listening to the people in the state of Virginia yesterday, in a state that he won by double digits, a Democrat governor lost,” said Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) yesterday, announcing the Senate plan to his constituents in a video. “I want the people of Kansas, I want Congress, I want the President to know that we are going to use every tool in our toolbox, every arrow in our quiver to stop Joe Biden’s unlawful vaccine mandate.”
“Including, if we have to, stopping cloture on the CR to fund the government unless they take out this language which harms hard-working Americans.”
