The Washington Post reports:
Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) ordered state agencies to resist the Biden administration’s coronavirus vaccine mandates on Monday, pledging to fight the White House in court. In her executive order, she says state officials should not penalize any business or individual for ignoring federal vaccine mandates.
It also says that even when compelled to enforce federal laws, state officials should “take all practical steps to notify the affected” that Alabama opposes all vaccine mandates. Her attorney general is preparing a lawsuit to stop the mandates, she said.
“Alabamians are overwhelmingly opposed to these outrageous, Biden mandates, and I stand with them,” Ivey said in a statement.
