Sens. Marshall, Scott Legislation Ends Vaccine Mandates for International Truck Drivers

(Washington, D.C., February 23, 2022) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. joined Senator Rick Scott (FL) and other colleagues in introducing the Terminating Reckless and Unnecessary Checks Known to Erode Regular Shipping (TRUCKERS) Act. The TRUCKERS Act would exempt non-U.S. citizen commercial truck drivers traveling from Canada or Mexico who are seeking to temporarily enter the United States for business through a land port of entry from proof of vaccination requirements. 

“Make no mistake, Joe Biden’s supply chain crisis rages on and will have serious implications for years to come,” said Senator Marshall. “However, unconstitutional vaccine mandates for the very people who keep our supply chain running only worsens the disaster at hand. I’m proud to partner with Senator Scott to introduce legislation that will protect hardworking truck drivers from this blatant government overreach and allow them to do their job, keeping store shelves stocked across the nation.”
