Republican senators introduced a bill to exempt foreign truck drivers from vaccine mandates when temporarily entering the U.S. for business. Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) led the charge on Tuesday in introducing the Terminating Reckless and Unnecessary Checks Known to Erode Regular Shipping or TRUCKERS Act.

In a statement, Scott called Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates “ridiculous.” He added, truckers are the lifeblood of the U.S. economy and placing those restrictions on them will only make the ongoing supply chain crisis worse. GOP Rep. Carlos Gimenez (R-Fla.) is expected to announce a companion bill in the House later this week.

Meanwhile, the first day of The People’s Convoy kicked off Wednesday. One America’s Stefan Kleinhenz has more.
