Alabama Governor Kay Ivey (R) on Monday directed state agencies to resist Joe Biden’s Covid vax mandate.
Last month Joe Biden dropped the iron fist on the private sector by requiring all employees get jabbed or tested weekly for Covid… OR ELSE.
In addition to telling all 2.1 million federal employees to get jabbed or face firing, the Biden regime will be forcing all companies with 100+ employees to either test workers or prove they are vaccinated.
Small businesses that do not comply with the Biden Regime’s new Covid mandates will face hefty fines.
Governor Ivey is pushing back on Joe Biden’s mandate and called it an “outrageous overreach.”
“Governor Ivey signed an executive order forbidding executive branch agencies — which include agencies such as Medicaid, Mental Health and Human Resources — from penalizing employees or businesses for non-compliance with the federal vaccine mandate.” – AP reported.
“The federal government’s outrageous overreach has simply given us no other option, but to begin taking action, which is why I am issuing this executive order to fight these egregious COVID-19 vaccine mandates,” Ivey said in a statement.
The federal government’s overreach has given us no other option, but to begin taking action, which is why I am issuing this EO to fight these covid-19 vaccine mandates. As long as I’m governor, AL will not force anyone to take the vaccine. #alpolitics ➡️ https://t.co/d490Ogyevf

Ivey’s executive order does not apply to universities, AP said. “The universities were created by the Alabama Constitution and are under the management and control of a board of trustees.”
