Republican senators are trying to repeal Washington, D.C.’s current mandates for consumers and students.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced the bill known as the Restore Parental and Consumer Medical Rights in the Nation’s Capital Act.

“Enacting a vaccine mandate that infringes upon the right of parents to make medical decisions for their children and the personal liberties of consumers, in the capital of what is supposed to be the freest country in the world, doesn’t sound like freedom at all,” said Paul in a statement. “My legislation would stop these ridiculous, unscientific mandates and restore individual and parental rights in the District.”
Paul’s legislation specifically repeals (1) the executive order issued by Mayor Muriel Bowser (D-Washington, D.C.) on December 22, 2021, and (2) The Coronavirus Immunization of School Students and Early Childhood Workers Amendment Act of 2021, enacted by the District of Columbia Council on January 12, 2022.
Sens. Rick Scott (R-FL), James Lankford (R-OK), Roger Wicker (R-MS), and Kevin Cramer (R-ND) are co-sponsoring the legislation.

“Forcing an unconstitutional vaccine mandate that strips parents of their rights to make medical decisions for their children and takes away freedoms of consumers has no place in our nation’s capital,” said Scott in a statement. “I got COVID, I got the vaccine and I encourage everyone to talk to their doctors and make informed decisions, but I will never support a mandate that takes decisions out of the hands of hardworking American families.”
Scott added the government has “no right to tell Americans what health care decisions they must make in order to live, work and raise a family in the District of Columbia. I urge my colleagues to support this important bill.”
Someone that may support it in the House of Representatives is Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC). During an appearance this month on The Todd Starnes Show, Norman said the mayor’s actions were “insane.”
“For her to do this is insane, but it’s typical Democrat socialist overreach in my opinion and many others.”
