"They should wait until they get the Supreme Court decision, and of course that's an individual business decision," Hutchinson, a Republican, told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" Sunday when asked if large businesses should comply with the rule, which his state and others are challenging before the nation's highest court.

"This mandate of (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration), the federal government, needs to be struck down and that's why we're fighting against it," he added. "I expect the Supreme Court hopefully to rule against the Biden administration on that oppressive vaccine mandate."

The Supreme Court heard arguments in the case on Friday, with the majority-conservative court appearing ready to reject the vaccine mandate, which represents one of President Joe Biden's most aggressive attempts so far to combat the spread of Covid-19.

Issued last year by OSHA, the rule requires employers with 100 or more employees to ensure that their employees are fully vaccinated or undergo regular testing and wear a face covering at work. There are exceptions for those with religious objections. The rule is set to partially go into effect Monday.
