Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson defends plans to challenge the White House's new vaccine regulations in court during an appearance on NBC’s "Meet the Press."
"This is an unprecedented assumption of federal mandate authority that really disrupts and divides the country. It divides our partnership between the federal government and the states, and it increases the division in terms of vaccination when we should all be together trying to increase the vaccination uptake."
"I support businesses being able to require vaccination. But it's their own independent choice for their workplace. But to have the federal mandate will be counterproductive. It's going to increase resistance. We're going to grow our vaccinations whether you have this or not," he said.
