Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs introduced legislation Monday preventing Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg from imposing Covid-19 testing mandates on air carriers for domestic flights, according to a press release.
Buttigieg revealed during an ‘Axios on HBO’ interview this past week that the Biden administration is evaluating a requirement that would make all passengers take a COVID test proving they’re negative before boarding any domestic and international flights in the United States.
“It is outrageous that the Biden administration is contemplating new regulations or guidelines to require passengers to undergo COVID-19 testing before domestic air travel,” said Biggs. He has has been outspoken on the extraordinary measures that have infringed on American freedoms during the coronavirus lockdowns.
“This is another unscientific, bureaucratic action designed to control Americans’ lives and increase dependence on government,” he said. “Further, such a mandate would devastate the airline industry and destroy massive sectors of our recovering economy.”
Biggs noted that he fly’s “domestically regularly each month, and I observe the efforts of the airlines to make each passenger safe. The Biden administration should listen to the airline executives and heed the science of healthy air travel. This misguided idea should not become implemented policy under any circumstances.”
Buttigieg confirmed to Axios that the administration is in conversations with the CDC.
“What I can tell you is, it’s going to be guided by data, by science, by medicine, and by the input of the people who are actually going to have to carry this out,” said Buttigieg.

Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”
“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.
Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
