New York Governor Andrew Cuomo asked businesses to only admit vaccinated people during a press conference Monday. His hope is that more New Yorkers will receive the COVID-19 vaccine as a result.

“Private businesses I am asking them, and suggesting to them, go to ‘vaccine only’ admission,” Cuomo said.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 75.4% of adult New Yorkers have received at least one vaccine dose and 68.6% received both already. Cuomo tweeted that 40,880 doses were administered over past 24 hours on Sunday. Overall, New York administered 22,295,684 doses to date.

During the presser, Cuomo also announced that all metro employees and New York employees of the Port Authority will be required to either be vaccinated or get tested weekly beginning on Labor Day. “Amid the growing threat of the Delta variant, this precaution will help ensure the health & safety of these dedicated workforces,” Cuomo tweeted.

Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has mandated that all teachers in the city must be vaccinated before school starts this fall. His city alone has already ministered more than 10 million vaccines. “We’re doing everything we can to ensure every eligible New Yorker gets vaccinated,” de Blasio tweeted.

TX Federal Judge takes ‘extraordinary’ step to ‘fast track’ ruling on Biden’s student loan forgiveness, forego trial

Just The News reported on an “extraordinary move” by one Texas judge who is prepared to cancel President Biden’s student loan debt forgiveness payments.

U.S. District Judge Mark T. Pittman, a Trump appointee, says he is ready to decide the merits of Biden’s plan and skip the preliminary injunction and customary trial.

“U.S. District Judge Mark T. Pittman had been holding a hearing on a request from the small business group Job Creators Network’s legal arm on behalf of two plaintiffs to issue a preliminary injunction blocking Biden from enacting the debt relief until the legality of his executive order was decided” Just The News reports.

However, Pittman declared “in a five-sentence, one-page order that the government and plaintiff lawyers had made all the necessary arguments and that a trial would not elicit further evidence so he is ready to move to a judgement on the merits of the case.”

“Having held a hearing on Plaintiffs’ Motion for Preliminary Injunction and reviewed the related briefing, the Court intends to consolidate as it appears that the Parties have presented their case and no evidence of significance would be forthcoming at trial,” wrote Pittman.

Pittman said he was prepared to advance the preliminary objection request “to a determination on the merits” and gave the Justice Department and plaintiff lawyers until Friday to file any objections to his plan.
