“Any employee, officer, agent, or other representative of a public, nonprofit, or private entity who inquires about the COVID-19 vaccination status of any student, employee, member, or anyone else seeking admission on the entity’s premises is guilty of a misdemeanor,” the text of the bill states.
Asking someone to show you their vaccination passport will be punishable by a fine of $14,000 or a year in jail.
The bill was spearheaded by South Carolina Rep. Mike Burns, Reps. Patrick Haddon, Steven Wayne Lond, and William Chumley as sponsors.
This bill is primarily one to protect both your job, home, health insurance, car, future,” Burns told Newsweek.
“They cannot ask you if you are pregnant or intend to get pregnant, or HIV status. But they won’t fire you when you disclose that you’re not taking the vaccine?” he added. “Who thinks all this is a great idea?”
Burns stated that the insurance companies planned to charge higher premiums for unvaccinated people.
Many states banned the C-19 passports, including Utah, Arizona, Arkansas, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, Missouri, Alaska, Mississippi, Indiana, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina.
Many states, among which are Florida, Montana, Utah, Texas, Michigan, Indiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Georgia, have a state worker vaccine mandate ban.
