If public hearings are any indication, Alaska Senate Bill 156 enjoys strong support from those who oppose coercive measures that pressure and threaten fellow Alaskans into getting the experimental Covid injections.

Introduced by Sen. Lora Reinbold (R-Eagle River), SB156 has already gone through several lengthy and impassioned public hearings – almost universally in favor. After passing out of the Senate State Affairs Committee the legislation now sits in the Senate Health and Social Services Committee, where it had yet another hearing on March 8.

The bill clearly affirms that Alaskans have a fundamental right to decline experimental Covid shots without suffering various forms of discrimination, such as denial of medical treatment or entrance into public buildings or loss of livelihood due to Covid mandates.

As one woman testified last month, “We shouldn’t discriminate between those who choose to be a part of a science experiment and those who do not … Alaskans have the right to rely on natural immunity.”

It is certain that SB156 will have a tough go in the Democratic controlled State House, but that doesn’t mean the Senate should sit on it. This legislation represents a clear line in the sand for the 59 legislators who are up for re-election this year. They either support personal liberties, bodily autonomy and the right of individuals to decide whether to submit to an experimental jab, or they do not.

Every lawmaker who falls in the latter category should have to go on record as casting a vote that opposes efforts to end vax-based discrimination.

SB156 explicitly prohibits state agencies or political subdivisions from adopting any policy that requires an individual to get the jab as a prerequisite to exercise a right or receive a benefit that is available to the public. It also bans individuals and governments from denying employment, public accommodations or any local or state services, goods, facilities, advantages, privileges, licensing, educational opportunities, health care access, or employment opportunities based on the individual’s COVID-19 shot status.

That means no Covid passports … for anything.

It’s time for Alaska’s public servants to go on record.

    Finally someone standing up to this madness.
    It’s not our governor in office now.
    Remember to vote out all these people. Before it to late and we’re like Canada with martial law.

  • Neil DeWitt says:

    This will bea great article to follow up on!

  • brent shuman says:

    I dare to hope.

  • Alex Jones was right says:

    It’s already to late for Alaska, it’s sadly now a blue state, rank choice voting, dominion voting software, mail in voting, dead people moving. Big Tech tyranny

  • JC says:

    Any Democrat lawmaker who votes against this will regret it. All over the country and many parts of the world, the Covid nonsense is falling apart. And changes are happening daily. Who even knew we would need to have specific legislation to protect us!

  • Jon and Ruth Ewig says:

    There are even more serious problems with the experimental vax. People who are reacting to it probably cannot sue the drug companies because it still is considered experimental. People who have gotten it have no recourse when it is not approved and then drug companies are not liable. A class action suit would be the action from across the country but who is responsible for people’s adverse reactions? We will be watching the House but the other problem is that the unions and academia control the votes, not the communities. Daily prayer is the answer with the governments being so corrupt. God will need to help us.

    I testified on this, though I couldn’t do it verbally since I was too far down the line and they closed public testimony. I did, however, listen to everyone’s comments and they were 100% in support–not a single dissenting voice! So I really hope that gives the legislators a clue. We need protections for our bodily autonomy! My family has directly suffered from vaccine coercion, because my husband has been living under the threat of job loss ever since the introduction of the vaccines. Although this legislation won’t help us, because we are DOD/Mil, I really hope this passes so that others will be protected too. If you want the vaccine, you can have it! But don’t force it on people who don’t want it. That’s a cruel violation of our body autonomy and God given right to informed consent.

  • Robert A Schenker says:

    DeeCee, I doubt many Legislators will support this measure. They will cite ” Credentialed Support” , meaning lying Governmental agencies with alphabet names. What this bill really represents is the disconnect between the ruling Establishment and the informed citizen.
