Could vaccine mandates be coming to Texas? Not if YOU take action to stop them!

A new bill that would effectively ban vaccine mandates in the state of Texas has been introduced in the State Legislature, and lawmakers are working to approve it before the end of the current special legislative session!

Senate Bill (SB) 51, which closely mirrors an executive order signed by Governor Greg Abbott last week, was just approved by the Senate State Affairs Committee, but time is running out to get it to the Governor's desk for final approval...

Can we count on you to contact your members of the Texas State Legislature -- both in the House and Senate -- and ask them to act quickly to ensure that SB 51 advances through the legislative process before the end of the current special session?

As you may already be aware, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed an executive order last Monday, October 11th that bans ALL entities operating within the state, including employers, from issuing their own vaccine mandates.

In doing so, he specifically requested that the State Legislature pick up the baton, so to speak, and follow-up the order with legislation during the ongoing special legislative session that would codify its provisions under Texas state law, ensuring that this outright ban on vaccine mandates is here to stay for the long-term.

SB 51, which is sponsored by Republican State Senator Bryan Hughes, was introduced the day after Gov. Abbott's order was officially signed, and the Senate State Affairs Committee voted to approve the legislation and send it to the full Senate floor for debate on Thursday. 

However, the special session is slated to end on October 19th -- tomorrow! -- and if the bill isn't passed by both chambers before the deadline, it could spell trouble for the medical autonomy of people across the Lone Star State...

The legislation, much like Gov. Abbott's executive order, would ban all public and private entities in the state of Texas from implementing vaccination mandates, including state and local government institutions; schools, colleges, and universities; businesses and places of public accommodation; and all employers.

Additionally, the bill also explicitly bans any and all workplace discrimination based on vaccination status, forbidding Texas employers from firing, refusing to hire, or penalizing employees simply because they've opted against getting the Covid-19 vaccine.

If these sound like reasonable accomodations, that's because they are.

Nobody's medical autonomy should be tampered with, be it by a government entity or private institution!

And, of course, every individual's right to object to the new Covid vaccine, be it for medical, religious/faith-based, ethical, or personal purposes, must be protected under the law, even as Joe Biden, along with his state level allies, continues to ramp up his massive federal coercion campaign.

But as we said, the clock is ticking, and time is running out to get this crucial piece of legislation across the finish line...

TUESDAY (October 19th) is the DEADLINE to ensure that SB 51 is approved by both chambers of the Texas Legislature and advanced to Gov. Abbott's desk. That's why we need YOUR help NOW.

So please, take a few minutes to contact your State Legislators, both in the Texas House and Senate, and urge them to work towards passing SB 51, which will ban all vaccine mandates in Texas, before the end of the current special legislative session on Tuesday.

Thank you!
