WASHINGTON — U.S. Senate voted on Tuesday in support of Senator Rand Paul's legislation to put an end to the mask mandate for public transportation – including on airlines with a bipartisan vote of 57-40
Kansas Senator Roger Marshall served as an original cosponsor of the resolution to repeal travel mask mandates.
“The CDC continues to make decisions as if they are in a vacuum without consideration for the big picture...95% of Americans have some form of immunity... New infections are down 94%... It’s time to stop the travel mask mandates. It’s time to let our people go," said Senator Marshall.
Despite the vote, the resolution may not survive a vote in the House. It would also need to overcome a possible veto by President Biden.
