Miyares: Only Citizen Legislatures Make Mandates

Miyares: Only Citizen Legislatures Make Mandates

By  Shaun Kenney – 

Virginia Democrats were swift to condemn the AG opinion, for the obvious reason that it was issued by a Republican AG.

Good news last week as Republican Attorney General Jason Miyares sent a message to the Democratic Party as to whether the state executive can enforce vaccine mandates.

The answer?

General Assemblies can; Attorney Generals and imperious governors?  Not so much:

 

In essence, Miyares argues that while universities can indeed mandate vaccinations (polio, smallpox, and the like) they can only do so by the authority of the General Assembly — which means citizen legislators accountable to the people get to decide the question and not state-level bureaucrats attached to academia.

Though the Virginia General Assembly has certainly taken the time to regulate other aspects of the COVID pandemic, to date neither the Democratic-controlled Virginia Senate nor the Republican-led House of Delegates has elected to take up such legislation, ergo there is neither the impetus nor the authority for Virginia’s public universities to do so of their own accord.

Virginia Democrats were swift to condemn the AG opinion, for the obvious reason that it was issued by a Republican AG.

Shaun Kenney is the editor of The Republican Standard, former chairman of the Board of Supervisors for Fluvanna County, and a former executive director of the Republican Party of Virginia.
