Inslee’s Western States Review Could Delay Virus Next Week
According to news from the Washington State Department of Health, the first shipments of the COVID vaccines should arrive as early as next week. However, it could be delayed 1-2 days because of Gov. Inslee's Western States Review.
It's a questionable 'pact' he entered into with CA, OR, and reportedly Nevada where an "independent" group of national "experts" will review the vaccines to ensure their safety.
WSDOH says "The federal government has given us an estimate of 62,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine for our initial allocation..." pending FDA approval. A panel of experts also voted 17-4 to release the vaccines, so it's headed our way.
Some sources say it could arrive as early as Monday, however, it would be delayed 1-2 days due to Inslee's Review. This idea is, according to some legal experts and legislators, Un-Constitutional, as it violates Article 1 Section 10 Clause 1, which reads as follows:
"No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility." (bold lettering added for emphasis).
The bolded sentence refers to his Western States Review. This would also apply to his Western States Environmental Pact he created with OR, CA and British Columbia back in 2013. That clearly apparently violated entering into a contract, or pact with foreign country.
Nonetheless, the vaccine should begin to arrive next week, according to WSDOH.
