No matter how hard the Fed tries to implement the New World Order “death poke,” it will fail. But this was a close one.
Officials in Joey Demento’s administration have repeatedly insisted that there aren’t plans for a federal vaccine passport system. During a May 21 press briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that requiring proof of vaccination is not in the administration’s “intended plan.”
Sure. And if you like your plan, you can keep your plan…period.
Thankfully, a few mostly Republican governors don’t believe the Biden administration. Thus, some stepped up to stop this madness. But how pathetic that the United States has such a runaway government, that we are even debating what a person can do with their body, which includes the bodies of unborn children.
Below is the current list of states who have banned vaccine mandates or passports, as well as the verbiage around their legislation.
Alabama: Vaccine passports are banned in this state. Republican Gov. Kay Ivey on May 24 signed a bill that bans businesses and government entities across the state from requiring coronavirus vaccine passports. Among several provisions, the bill states that “an entity or individual doing business in this state may not refuse to provide any goods or services, or refuse to allow admission, to a customer based on the customer’s immunization status or lack of documentation that the customer has received an immunization.” The law limits the requirements to vaccines approved as of Jan. 1, 2021.
Arizona: Employers must provide reasonable accommodations for employees with sincerely held religious beliefs, practices or observances that prevent them from getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Exceptions can be made if it poses a hardship for business operations. The bill prohibits the establishment of a COVID-19 vaccine passport. However, healthcare institutions can require employees be vaccinated.
I’m not happy that Arizona capitulated on healthcare workers, but at least there is coverage for most others.
Arkansas: State agencies and state officials are prohibited from requiring people to get the COVID-19 vaccine as a condition of employment. These agencies cannot coerce individuals who refuse the vaccine by withholding career advancements, wage increases or insurance discounts.
Sadly, this legislation only covers state agencies and not businesses in general.
Michigan: In a bill that passed in both chambers, any entity of the state that receives funding from producing, developing or issuing a COVID-19 vaccine passport is prohibited. Any public funds are prohibited from being used to implement a vaccine mandate program of an employer or state government.
Not enough teeth in this bill, but it’s a start.
Montana: An employer cannot discriminate against an employee based on their vaccination status. They cannot refuse employment or withhold wage increases based on having a COVID-19 vaccine. An individual cannot be required to get a vaccine that only has emergency use authorization or is undergoing safety trials.
Montana has made the right move. And I believe this will soon become the law of the land once sanity returns to this country.
New Hampshire: Employers can only mandate a vaccine as a condition of employment if there is a direct threat to the safety of others that cannot be reduced by reasonable accommodations. Any government agency is banned from compelling individuals to get the COVID-19 vaccine or provide proof of vaccination status to receive a public service or use a public facility.
New Hampshire provides enough wiggle room on both side when it comes to private-sector employers. However, they cover the public with the second part of their statute.
North Dakota: A government entity cannot require documentation of an individual’s vaccination status to receive public services, funds or use public property. A state government cannot require private businesses to obtain documentation of vaccination status for communicating the status before employment.
North Dakota covers the public by not requiring businesses to obtain documentation of vaccination. However, this still needs more meat on the bones.
Ohio: In a bill that has passed in both chambers, private and public entities are banned from requiring an individual to receive a vaccine that is not fully approved by the FDA. Unvaccinated staff members can’t be required to refrain from or engage in activities or precautions that differ from those who have received the vaccine.
Tennessee: A state agency, department or political subdivision cannot require individuals to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
Texas: In a bill that passed both chambers, employers are banned from refusing to hire, discharging or discriminating against an individual because the individual does not provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination status.
Texas got it right. And the ramifications are huge, given that many companies are headquartered in Texas.
Utah: A government entity is prohibited from requiring an individual to get the COVID-19 vaccine as a condition of employment or participate in an activity, before it’s fully approved by the FDA.
Utah offers the cop out that the Fed seeks: approval by the FDA.
That’s not an approval, but bureaucratic wrangling that could potentially force some people to get the “death poke”.
