The U.S. Senate this week passed a measure with bipartisan support to prohibit future mask mandates on public transportation, including plane travel.

The U.S. Senate passed the amendment as part of an appropriations bill on Wednesday in a 59-38 vote, drawing support from 10 Democrats in addition to many Republicans, Fox News reported.

The initiative had been brought forward by U.S. Republican Sen. J.D. Vance of Ohio to “ensure that no federal bureaucracy, no commercial airline, and no public school can impose the misguided policies of the past.”

After introducing his Freedom to Breathe Act in September, Vance had intended to draw Democrat support, hoping to hold congressmen to their promises that the mandates would not make a comeback, LifeSiteNews reported at the time.
