(NewsReady.com) – The hits for the Biden Administration just keep on coming. This time, it’s Louisiana, along with 24 other states, suing over mandates affecting the nation’s Head Start programs.
In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs claim the directive violates the Tenth Amendment as well as the Congressional Review Act. They’re asking the courts to halt the mandate, which requires children in the Head Start program, ages two and up, to wear masks. It also says volunteers, contractors and staff must receive the vaccination by the end of January.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry (R) says the mandate threatens direct economic harm to those that benefit from the federally-funded programs and “will cost jobs and impede child development.”
Other prominent states in the lawsuit include Texas, Florida, and South Dakota, whose governors have spoken out against mandates in general. Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton (R), is particularly outspoken saying, “These unconstitutional mandates have no place in our country, and they are not welcomed here in Texas.”
Additional lawsuits regarding vaccine and mask mandates are making their way through the courts with mixed outcomes. If this one is upheld, it could put the well-being of thousands of children at risk.
