Kansas Sen. votes to nix travel mask mandate, urges Dems to do the same
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Kansas U.S. Senator Roger Marshall voted to nix the travel mask mandate on Tuesday and urged Democrats to do the same.
U.S. Senator Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) says on Tuesday, March 15, he spoke on the Senate floor to urge Democrats to support legislation offered by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ken.) to end the mask mandate for public transportation - including on airlines.
Marshall said he served as an original cosponsor of the resolution to repeal the travel mandate which the Senate passed with a vote of 57-40.
“The CDC continues to make decisions as if they are in a vacuum without consideration for the big picture. Ninety-five percent of Americans have some form of immunity,” Marshall said. “New infections are down 94%. It’s time to stop the travel mask mandates. It’s time to let our people go.”
