Discrimination has to end!
Recently I have been getting messages from people reporting discrimination based on their COVID vaccination status.
Some have sent in information about continued testing. MANY are reporting that their employer is singling them out with masks.
We know that the vaccines do not stop infection, transmission, hospitalization, or even death.
How does any of this make sense?
In 2022, HB1001 was passed and Hoosiers are STILL told that this bill is to "protect their right to decline the COVID vaccine."

The bad news is, the bill was poorly written and actually codified religious discrimination through testing. This is a HUGE problem.
The bill also excluded students in medical professions from protections.
Rep Becky Cash wrote a bill, HB1127, that would have corrected the major issues with 2022's HB1001. The bill died in committee without so much as a hearing.
We were incredibly disappointed.
The good news is that there is an opportunity to put this same language in another bill!
Will you help us end COVID discrimination?

"Offer the language from 1127 into SB474 during Public Health Committee. Sen. Johnson, the author is on board & Rep Cash has already drafted the amendment, but you must file it. It would correct workforce issues related to COVID Discrimination."
💥💥Call today, this bill could be heard as early as tomorrow!

"Hear 474, and get 1127 into SB474 during committee. Sen. Johnson, the author is on board & Rep Cash has already drafted the amendment. It would correct workforce issues related to COVID Discrimination."
Are you wondering what this language will do, and how it fits into the bill?
SB 474 deals with workforce.
According to the summary, the bill removes physicals and drug testing of nurses to facilitate workforce.
We all know the mandates and discrimination around the COVID vaccine have significantly impacted nursing workforce.
HB1127 is a workforce issue and the Speaker, Todd Huston, agrees as evidence by the fact that the bill was sent to pensions and labor committee.
It should be germame (pertinent to the bill) for this reason.
However, germaneness rule should not apply since we are asking that this language be applied in committee.
This is the ONLY chance that we will have to get the discriminatory testing removed this year. It must be done NOW.
This amendment supports the improvement of nursing work force in 2 ways.
First in the short term, we have nurses leaving jobs because of the mandates and we have future nurses who are being denied clinical placement. They have been denied exemptions because of a small oversight and the language from 1127 will remedy the oversight.
The remedy simply mirrors the medical provider section to the rest of the bill without putting entities in danger of a violation of federal laws/requirements.
Secondly, The language also addresses testing. We have reports of employees leaving their employer because of frequent testing. Some nurses faced serious issues with nose bleeds and tissue damage.
This language strikes balance, because it does not limit the ability of the employer to those who are showing symptoms or have had high risk exposure. It adds evidence based practices to testing.
