Rogge Dunn Group’s Rogge Dunn was quoted in a WFAA article on October 31st concerning the billions of dollars in funding for Texas universities riding on whether schools should require COVID-19 vaccination for employees.
In early September, President Biden created a COVID-19 vaccine requirement for federal employees and contractors with a deadline of Dec. 8 to become fully vaccinated. Like airline and defense companies, universities have federal contracts worth billions of dollars. Texas universities are deciding whether they need to comply with federal law after Gov. Abbot banned COVID-19 vaccine requirements.
Dunn was able to speak on the challenges this has created for Texas universities.
“There’s conflicting advice. There’s legal grey areas and there’s a lot of money at stake,” Dunn says. “You’re spending attorney’s fees, you’re spending administrative time and you’re bringing to the forefront and if you’re wrong, you’re going to get whacked.”
Dunn says universities will likely need to follow the federal guidance or file a suit.
