LaMalfa Rolls Out Legislative Package Banning
“COVID Vaccine Passports”
(Washington, DC) – Congressman
Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after
introducing the first of two bills to prohibit the use of “COVID
Rep. LaMalfa said, “It is unacceptable in this country that
someone might be denied service because they are unable to
receive a vaccine injection due to legitimate health reasons,
availability, or simply because they choose not to receive one.
This country was founded to protect individual freedoms, and my
legislation will ensure that Americans do not have their health
decisions forced upon them by the federal government or private
companies. We cannot allow the fear and uncertainty of 2020 to
justify authoritarianism and increased government control.”
The Biden Administration coronavirus team has been actively
working with certain private entities in efforts to institute
COVID related passport requirements.
LaMalfa’s first bill, introduced today, will:
* Require that the Secretary of Transportation prohibit air
carriers from denying an individual air transportation solely
because such individual lacks COVID-19 related documentation,
* Prohibit Amtrak from denying rail transportation to an
individual solely because such individual lacks COVID-19 related
* Prohibit funds from being used to create or administer a
database of individuals who have received a vaccine injection
against COVID-19, or for any federal agency to require proof
that an individual has received it.
LaMalfa’s second bill, to be introduced in the coming days,
* Prohibit businesses denying service based on COVID
* Prohibit employers requiring that their employees receive
the COVID-19 injection, and
* Prohibit state and local governments from prohibiting
access based on COVID prevention status.
Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing
California’s First Congressional District, including Butte,
Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra,
Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
