Governor Eric J. Holcomb offered the following statement in response to OSHA publishing the emergency temporary standard (ETS) which mandates companies with 100 employees or more require the  COVID-19 vaccine or weekly testing.

“I direct the Indiana Department of Labor to work with the Attorney General on a lawsuit challenging the federal government regarding the OSHA ETS. This is an overreach of the government’s role in serving and protecting Hoosiers. While I agree that the vaccine is the tool that will best protect against COVID-19, this federal government approach is unprecedented and will bring about harmful, unintended consequences in the supply chain and the workforce.”
