Rep. Tenney’s Bill Would End COVID Mandates for Colleges


It’s time to end COVID-19 mandates for colleges and universities. That is the message Congresswoman Claudia Tenney is sending as she introduced a bill in Washington that would prevent higher education institutes from continuing to impose what she calls, “unconstitutional and overreaching” COVID vaccine mandates.

The “Ending COVID Vaccine Mandates for Colleges and Universities Act” would restrict access to federal higher education funds for colleges and universities that continue to impose vaccine mandates on student populations.

 “The decision to receive the COVID vaccine is between a student and their doctor, not their university or the government,” said Congresswoman Tenney. “President Biden has said it himself: the pandemic is over. Now it is time for colleges and universities to lift the mandates, as other institutions have done. Whether a young adult receives the vaccine should not impact their ability to access educational opportunities. It is time to end all unscientific and unconstitutional vaccine mandates, including those that remain in effect on our college and university students.”

A number of higher education systems nationwide, including the State University of New York, have enacted COVID mandates on their students.
