Jacobs says court agrees that Hochul overstepped authority on mask mandate

posted by Howard B. Owens in Chris Jacobs, NY-27.

Press release:

Congressman Chris Jacobs (NY-27) released the following statement on the NYS Department of Education defying the court ruling that removed Governor Hochul’s unconstitutional mask mandate.

Yesterday, a NYS court ruling made it clear that Governor Hochul vastly overstepped her authority in implementing an unconstitutional mask mandate on New York State citizens. Yesterday’s ruling sends the same clear message to Governor Hochul as the courts have consistently sent to President Biden regarding his mandates, you are not an emperor, and your powers are not absolute. This ruling is a win for the freedom of every New Yorker and all mandates must be rescinded immediately. No New Yorker - young or old - should face repercussions for exercising their freedom.

Yeah. Only Republicans are allowed to say, "no."

If the emergency powers were still a thing, pretty sure the court wouldn't have blocked it.
