(Bloomberg) -- The governor of Wyoming is pressing for legal action against the White House vaccine mandate for businesses and considering a special session of the state legislature to address the matter.

“This is not a fire, ready, aim moment,” Governor Mark Gordon, a Republican, said in a statement issued Wednesday in Cheyenne. “We must be smart, thoughtful, and effective in the way we respond to these overreaching efforts by the Biden Administration.”
