Republican Senators introduce resolution calling on CDC to loosen Federal mask mandate

June 26, 2021

While many States are finally loosening mask restrictions and life is returning to normal the Federal mandate remains in place with no sign of being lifted anytime in their near future. But if a few Republican Senators have their way that could change soon. Here is more:

Republican senators this week introduced a resolution aimed to urge the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to update the federal mask mandate requiring face coverings to be worn on modes of public transportation.

The resolution, offered by Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Susan Collins (R-ME), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), calls on the Biden-led CDC to “review and update its guidance relating to mask-wearing in confined places.”

The resolution states that the Senate:

…encourages the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to review and update its guidance relating to mask-wearing in confined places to clarify that individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no longer need to wear a mask on public transportation networks throughout the United States, including at airports, onboard commercial aircraft, on over-the-road buses, and on commuter bus and rail systems.

The resolution also states that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) should update its mask requirements:

…to be consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance, to permit fully vaccinated individuals to travel on all transportation networks throughout the United States without wearing a mask.

Using language like “urge” “encourages” and “should” should get results…

By the way, I thought Joe Biden was only going to “ask” us to wear a mask for 100 days? Whatever happened to that promise and where is the mainstream media with the lie-o-meter they were so found of breaking out over the last four years?
