The Arkansas General Assembly is scheduled to reconvene on September 29 primarily to set the boundaries of Arkansas’ four congressional districts. A short one-issue session is not what many citizens are expecting. State Senators and Representatives have been hearing from constituents who want the legislature to address additional issues in the extended session, specifically COVID-19 related legislation.
Tuesday, September 21, the Washington County Republican Committee passed two resolutions — 1. to prevent employers from implementing COVID-19 vaccination mandates as a requirement for employment, and 2. requesting a Health Freedom Patients’ Bill of Rights. Read more about that here.
Now is the time to contact State Senators and Representatives and ask them to take this issue up immediately in session. Tell your representatives that you want them to do everything within their delegated authority to protect health freedom of its citizens by passing bills that reflect the intent of these resolutions and which stop breaches against the health freedoms belonging to Arkansans.
