Biden*'s "Mandate"

If you're familiar with regulatory procedures, you'll know that Biden*'s Mandate is a Shiny Object.

Writing an OSHA reg, getting internal approvals (and integrating all suggestions), then proposing, getting comments from the outside, then finalizing and publishing...........takes about 3 years.

EMERGENCY regs take just this side of 1.5 years.

That's why there are no lawsuits.

But it sure took your minds off Afghanistan, the Wide-Open Border, rocketing food prices, and the Bazillion-Dollar Budget, didn't it?


UPDATE with material from Last Refuge:

...If there was a federal intent to actually force American workers to get forcibly vaccinated as a condition of employment, there would be daily updates from a massive inter-agency network of compliance offices, regulatory agencies and private sector business interests giving updates and briefings.  And yes, that pertains only to the anticipated guidance part, not to the actual setting of a deadline and working through the implementation phase of the national mandate.

I’m only talking about the basic guidance aspect.  The labor discussions with internal and external customers of the DoL, OSHA, etc. to set a calendar for how to implement “guidance”,  just that part.   There’s nothing.

The absence of even a scintilla of material to indicate the White House or any federal agency is organizing an action plan of how to structure the guidance itself is telling.  The silence of the machine tells us it is not turned on.   The bureaucracy has not been triggered.  The machinery of the federal government has not been instructed to begin any process to execute on the instruction that OSHA will “develop a rule that will require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated.”  Nothing.

The silence is deafening.

It sure does seem like they have no intention of ever even triggering the process to get OSHA to begin evaluating how they could even begin to pull this off…. and again, for emphasis, I’m only talking about the tiny step of delivering initial guidance to employers that would indicate to them that OSHA was developing a rule....

Actually, Arizona has filed the first lawsuit:
Probably more for political reasons as he is running for Senate, but at least it's a start.
