By Assemblyman Kevin Kiley – March 2, 2022
Newsom has extended the school mask mandate through March 11. Because why not give California kids a couple more weeks of pointless misery.
Meanwhile, as CalMatters reports, all the obsessive new vaccine bills would make California “an outlier among states.” You can see the full list here; as always, our state is leading in the very worst way.
Here are the bills as summarized in this CalMatters article:
- SB 871 would require all children 0 to 17 to get the COVID-19 vaccine to attend child care or school;
- SB 866 would allow kids 12 to 17 to get the COVID-19 vaccine without parental consent;
- SB 1479 would require schools to continue testing and to create testing plans;
- SB 1018 would require online platforms to be more transparent about how information is pushed out to consumers;
- SB 1464 would force law enforcement officials to enforce public health orders;
- AB 1993 would require all employees, including independent contractors, to show proof of COVID-19 vaccine to work in California;
- AB 1797 would make changes to the California Immunization Record Database;
- AB 2098 would reclassify the sharing of COVID-19 “misinformation” by doctors and surgeons as unprofessional conduct that would result in disciplinary action.
The good news is we’ve stopped several such bills already. I believe we can stop each and every one of them.
In fact, this month we can restore a modicum of sanity at the Capitol. My agenda for March is simple: Repeal Prop. 47. Suspend the Gas Tax. End the Emergency.
If you managed to watch the State of the Union last night, the need for new political leadership has never been so painfully clear. And it had a dreadfully familiar ring.
I don’t know which is worse: that Newsom called California a “model for the nation” or that Biden seems to have believed him. He and his radical allies in Congress want to turn California from the outlier to the norm.
We simply can’t let that happen. We cannot allow our country to go down the same disastrous path as California.
This Monday was a record day with 806 citizen donations propelling us past our target. It is beyond uplifting to be joined by so many patriots who believe our state and country are worth fighting.
