Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtonexaminer.com: “Phoenix backs off from vaccine mandate after federal ruling”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Arizona’s capital city has hit the brakes on a planned vaccination mandate for city workers in January.

Earlier this fall, the City of Phoenix announced it would be abiding by President Joe Biden’s vaccination mandate for federal contractors since legal experts that officials consulted interpreted the mandate to apply to the city.

City Council members demanded to have a say in whether employees would be forced to abide by the mandate. That discussion was made moot for the time being by a federal court.
