Governor Mark Gordon joined another multi-state lawsuit on Friday fighting COVID-19 vaccine mandates on behalf of federal contractors.

Missouri originally filed the lawsuit against the Biden Administration for imposing the COVID drug on federal contractors and federally contracted employees. Wyoming is now one 10 states to sign on as co-plaintiffs.

The lawsuit takes issue with the Biden Administration’s use of federal procurement statutes to mandate vaccinations through Executive Order 14042. Governor Gordon said in a statement that the mandate is a clear example of federal overreach.

The lawsuit spells out 12 allegations. Among them, the states argue that the executive order usurps the states’ police powers, violates the Tenth Amendment and federalism, violates the Procurement Act, violates the Administrative Procedures Act, and is an unconstitutional exercise of spending power.
