what is he saying: Hutchinson told CNN “state of the UnionThe “Sunday requirement” needs to end” and urged Arkansas businesses with 100 or more employees to wait for the Supreme Court’s decision on the matter.

  • “I expect the Supreme Court to rule against the Biden administration on that repressive vaccine mandate,” Hutchinson said in his interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.
  • “Our employers in Arkansas, make some decisions that they should require a vaccine in the workplace. And I support their ability to make that decision. There shouldn’t be a ban against it,” Hutchinson continued.

“But others decide it’s not necessary. Maybe they work in a more open environment or they risk losing a lot of employees. And so they have that freedom.”

big picture: The Supreme Court heard arguments in the case on Friday, and a majority of the judges indicated they believed the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s need was too broad, per axios Sam Baker.


During this, Coronavirus cases and hospitalizations have risen in Arkansas this month, with Hutchinson sending National Guard troops around the state to aid with testing.

  • Representatives for the Biden administration did not immediately respond to Nerdshala’ request for comment.
