WASHINGTON, DC - DECEMBER 06: U.S. President Joe Biden removes his face mask before delivering remarks about the Build Back Better legislation's new rules around prescription drug prices in the East Room of the White House on December 06, 2021 in Washington, DC. According to the White House, the legislation will lower the costs of prescription drugs by giving negotiation powers to Medicare, imposing a tax penalty if drug companies increase prices faster than inflation, lowering insulin prices to $35 a month for people with diabetes and other regulations.

A federal judge in Georgia has blocked the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate for federal contractors.

According to Bloomberg, the judge halted the mandate nationwide, which was originally mandated by President Joe Biden in September. The decision follows a preliminary injunction issued by a federal judge in Kentucky, who was presiding over a case involving Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee.

The mandate would have taken effect on January 4th, and would have affected about 25% of the U.S. workforce, including employees of companies like Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Google, and General Motors, Bloomberg reported.

The mandate was opposed by a number of states almost immediately after it was signed, including Arizona, Florida, Texas, Oklahoma, and Georgia.

The Biden administration’s mandate for private companies with more than 100 employees has also been suspended. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled an injunction against the mandate. The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals is currently considering a lawsuit brought by the Daily Wire and numerous other companies challenging the mandate.
