Dear Gov1 Subscriber,

Small groups of right-wing protesters gathered outside heavily fortified statehouses around the country Sunday, outnumbered by National Guard troops and police brought in to prevent a repeat of the violence that erupted at the U.S. Capitol. While there were no reports of any clashes, law enforcement agencies remain on high alert going into President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on Wednesday.

And as government agencies seek to encourage all within their ranks to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, attorney Matthew Konya explains the necessary legal considerations before issuing vaccine mandates.
