The Supreme Court rejected appeals from three Republican U.S. House members challenging fines for not wearing face masks on the House floor in 2021.

Justices upheld the $500 fines issued to Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Thomas Massie, and Ralph Norman.

The mask mandate was part of the House’s COVID-19 response, remaining despite CDC guidance on vaccinated individuals.

Lower courts upheld the fines, stating they cannot review the mask policy.

House Speaker Mike Johnson’s lawyers urged the court to reject the appeal, despite Republican leadership voting against the mask policy.
