Rep. Boebert Introduces Bill Overturn Federal Mask Mandates

January 21, 2021

Washington, DC - Today, U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) released the following statement after introducing a bill to overturn Joe Biden’s federal mask mandate:

“You can’t make this stuff up. Joe Biden was on federal land without a mask the same day he signed a federal property mask mandate. Sadly, this is what we’ve come to expect from hypocritical Democrats. ‘Mandates for thee, but not for me.’

“The Biden administration is already headed in the wrong direction. Instead of focusing on reopening our economy and getting Americans back to work, this president wants more mandates and more lockdowns. Continued federal overreach won’t end the COVID-19 pandemic or put food on the table.”

Background:

Yesterday, Joe Biden signed an executive order mandating masks be worn at all times on federal properties and in federal buildings.

The Biden edict also applies to interstate commerce, requiring masks to be worn at airports as well as on planes, buses and trains.

Today, U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) introduced her first three bills as a Member of Congress.

H.R. 375, the No Mask Mandates Act, blocks the Biden federal mask mandate.

The bill allows for masks to be encouraged but not mandated when people are on federal property or engaging in interstate commerce.

The text of the bill can be viewed HERE.
