Ohio Senator J.D. Vance has introduced the “Freedom to Breathe Act” that would prohibit any federal official, including the President, from issuing mask rules.

It applies to airports, public transportation, and schools.

“We tried mask mandates once in this country. They failed to control the spread of respiratory viruses, violated basic bodily freedom, and set our fellow citizens against one another,” said Vance.

Several schools and businesses across the country have reinstated mask mandates due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases, CBS News reported.
