White House says 'politics' is behind Texas governor's executive order banning vaccine mandates

From Yahoo News | Politics by Alexander Nazaryan, Senior White House Correspondent

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott continue to battle the White House over how to curb the coronavirus pandemic, with both Republican governors challenging the vaccination requirements for businesses that were announced last month by the Biden administration. The mandate at issue covers any employer of more than 100 people, including federal employees, as well as employees of hospitals that receive federal assistance.

Among the supposed violators is an Orlando venue that hosted a concert by British singer Harry Styles. Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test was required for entry.
