PHOENIX (November 4, 2021) – Arizona Chamber of Commerce & Industry President and CEO Danny Seiden released the following statement:
“As we’ve said time and again, responsible Arizona employers of all sizes are doing their part to slow the spread of Covid-19 and protect their workforce and customers. Job creators are not looking to the federal government for advice on how to keep their workplaces safe.
“We remain concerned that this vaccine Emergency Temporary Standard risks establishing a troubling precedent whereby the federal government could attempt to justify future cumbersome and expensive mandates on employers, combined with stiff fines, which will only extend and exacerbate the economic harm caused by the pandemic.
“Bringing this pandemic to an end once and for all requires a partnership and collaboration between the private sector and all levels of government, not top-down, one-size-fits-all mandates from Washington.”
