Claudia Tenney and John Katko, both Republican Representatives, do not like that children will be forced to wear masks inside schools.
Governor Kathy Hochul announced that she would be mandating them soon after taking office.
Tenney said on Monday that it’s a parents decision on how they should raise their children, not the government who is forcing them to wear masks.
Katko agreed by saying the decision needs to be left to the local leaders in the communities.
