TULSA, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe and six other Senate Republicans have filed a bill that would stop workers from being fired for violating President Joe Biden's proposed vaccine requirements.

The Biden Administration is working on rules that would require employers with at least 100 employees to mandate the vaccine or test weekly.

"Essential workers have honorably served in hospitals, public safety, schools, and more throughout the pandemic, but now their livelihoods are threatened because of their vaccination status," said Senator Inhofe.

The White House is also requiring the vaccine for federal contractors. A bill from Oklahoma Senator James Lankford to reverse that rule was blocked by Senate Democrats last week.
