The House passed legislation prohibiting a state agency or local government from issuing documentation certifying an individual has received the COVID-19 vaccine. It would prohibit a state or local governmental entity from requiring vaccination documentation as a condition of receiving a public service. It also prohibits any governmental fees or penalties based on COVID-19 vaccination status. The same limitations would apply to any body created by or primarily funded through state or local governmental authority. An entity in violation of these requirements would be liable to a civil lawsuit initiated by the attorney general, county prosecutor, or another person. The bill has been referred to the Senate Health Policy and Human Services Committee for consideration.
