Today at 1:30pm the senate will hear HB1001 on 3rd reading.
What that means is that they will hear the title, a short synopsis from the sponsor and vote on final passage of the bill. However, it isn't quite over.
When legislation is passed in one chamber and then changed in another the author can "concur" or "dissent" the changes. If the author concurs it moves on for the Governors signature or veto. However, it if the author dissents then the bill goes to conference committee, which is referred to as the "wild west." Pretty much anything can happen in this committee.
At this point we have no hope that the bill will provide even a shred of Medical Liberty. At this point it is discrimination and tyranny. You can read more about that in the last blog. It covers the bill quite nicely and explains the changes that have happened.
Ultimately, the bill offers no greater protection than what current federal regulations do. However it does codify testing twice weekly.
This simple act will undoubtedly ensure that no Hoosier will be able to find an attorney to take discrimination cases based on testing of the unvaccinated in the work place.
As the law stands now, finding an attorney to take on a case for masking or testing is incredibly difficult. However once this bill passes it will me impossible.
I know that the legislators and lobbyists can twist and mince words to make you feel as though you are "getting something."
Let me assure you, you are "getting something," but in this case- nothing would be a lot better.
Here is your call to action: (Get it by texting 260-286-0988 the code: 1001
It is still important to call and let the legislature know where you stand. If they make discrimination into law they need to know what to expect from you. ACCOUNTABILITY.
You will make 2 calls before 1:00 today.
1. Your Senator (need help? text 260-286-0988: find)
Tell them: "Hoosiers deserve true Medical Liberty, not the discriminatory testing policies in HB1001. Vote No on HB1001, it offers no greater exemption that what is already offered by federal regulation."
2. Rep. Matt Lehman 317-234-9380
Tell Him "As the author of HB1001, kill it or take it to conference committee and remove Section 9, including all discriminatory vaccine exemption and testing language. You clearly are not going to give us true Medical Liberty we have the right to.”
Thank you for your dedication to Medical Liberty!
