Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly (D) slammed on Friday President Joe Biden's attempt to unilaterally mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for millions of Americans.

Kelly's comments came one day after the White House formally announced the mandate for businesses that employee more than 100 people. The mandate is being implemented via the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and requires unvaccinated employees to undergo routine COVID-19 testing.

What did Kelly say?

In a statement on Friday, Kelly condemned the mandate as neither "correct," nor "effective."

Kelly said:

Yesterday, I reviewed the new vaccine mandate from the Biden Administration. While I appreciate the intention to keep people safe, a goal I share, I don't believe this directive is the correct, or the most effective, solution for Kansas.

States have been leading the fight against COVID-19 from the start of the pandemic. It is too late to impose a federal standard now that we have already developed systems and strategies that are tailored for our specific needs. I will seek a resolution that continues to recognize the uniqueness of our state and builds on our on-going efforts to combat a once-in-a-century crisis.

The message received bipartisan applause from Kansas politicians.

In fact, Kansas state Sen. Tom Hawk (D) agreed that mandates aren't as effective as simply encouraging people.
