State Rep. Ken Borton, R-Gaylord, today issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court stayed the Biden administration’s emergency mandate requiring workers at large employers to be vaccinated or regularly tested for COVID-19:
“The Biden administration’s mandate was flawed from the beginning, and the Supreme Court rightly shut it down. With this unilateral order from a bureaucratic agency, the federal government tried to crack down on workers over their personal decisions by cracking down on their employers — putting both working families and businesses in a tight spot. Michigan families should be free to choose whether to get vaccinated without the government cutting off their livelihoods.”
State Rep. Ken Borton today said the U.S. Small Business Administration’s administrative declaration of disaster for Otsego County will offer affordable loans to help rebuild homes and businesses that were damaged by the tornado that hit the area in May.
State Rep. Ken Borton today touted billions of dollars in savings in the state’s new budget, which was signed into law today and includes funding for Northern Michigan infrastructure and transportation projects.
