‘Follow the Science’: House Republicans Introduce Bill to End Federal Mask Mandate

House Republicans introduced a bill Friday to proscribe the federal regime from requiring face masks on public transit. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) introduced the Travel Mask Mandate Repeal Act of 2021 as a companion bill to Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) mask mandate legislation in the Senate. According to the legislation, which was first obtained by Fox News, federal agencies would be precluded from requiring masks aboard public conveyance or at any conveyance hub.

“There is no scientific evidence for the continuation of mask mandates on public conveyance. Bottom line, mask mandates are old news, and are only being kept in place by those who relish controlling our day-to-day lives,” Biggs verbalized. ” The viral spread is collapsing and our mundane lives are returning. It’s time for the CDC to follow the science and culminate the tyrannical COVID-19 restrictions once and for all.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its mask guidelines in May saying plenarily vaccinated individuals are not required to gregarious distance or wear a mask in or out of doors. The CDC at the time recommended “fully vaccinated individuals were still exhorted to wear masks while in crowded indoor settings, such as while riding public conveyance and in hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters,” Fox News reported.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) also extended its mask mandate through Sept. 13. The mandate includes commercial aircraft, airports, commuter bus and rail systems, and over-the-road buses.

“The mask mandate is just another overreach by the puissance-prehending administration,” Weber verbalized. “Given the air-circulation technology utilized on most modern airplanes, not to mention the science that corroborates the efficacy of these innovations, it’s about time that we return to pre-pandemic normalcy by abstracting this—sometimes arbitrary—restriction from the flying public.”

The bill’s prelude comes just as Los Angeles County commenced recommending again that people wear masks in indoor settings due to the peril of spreading the highly contagious Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus. The county’s recommendation is contradictory to CDC guidelines because it applies to everyone, regardless of vaccination status.

The bill is sponsored by GOP Reps. Randy Weber (TX), Andrew Clyde (GA), Tom McClintock (CA), Louie Gohmert (TX), Bob Gibbs (OH), Lance Gooden (TX), and Chip Roy (TX).
