As Defending Utah and Dr Scott Bradley reported last week, HB117 was an attack on health freedom. In this update, Dr. Bradley and Defending Utah discuss the third version of the bill which codifies into law that businesses can require you to prove you’ve been vaccinated before shopping with them or remaining employed.
Lines 50 & 51 read:
“Nothing in this section prevents an entity described in Subsection (1) from
requiring a patron or an employee from providing vaccination verification by other means.”
The amendment that brought this atrocious language was passed 7 minutes after being introduced, giving the public and the legislature almost no time to vet the language change and alert the public to have their voice heard on the changes.
The rest of the bill is simply fluff to hide the fact that the legislature is working to pass a bill that is implementing mass vaccination through economic intimidation. HB117 has passed the house and is headed to the Senate.
