FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP/FOX 56) — Kentucky’s attorney general has pushed back against President Joe Biden’s coronavirus vaccination mandate for private employers, filing a lawsuit claiming the requirement amounts to government overreach.

The suit was filed Thursday in federal court in Kentucky.

Attorney General Daniel Cameron says it takes aim at the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate for federal contractors.

A statement from Cameron’s office said some workers will “be forced to receive the vaccine or lose their job.” The statement does not mention the alternative option of weekly testing.

Ohio and Tennessee joined in filing the suit. It claims the vaccination requirement is unlawful and unconstitutional.
