House Bill (HB) 10, the Religious Exemption Protection Act failed in the House Health Subcommittee.
House Bill 13 is a bill to keep the state or state agency from mandating a vaccine for COVID-19.
That bill has also been tied up in the House with no action from the committee except to now kick the can to the Senate and see if they’ll take any action on it. And now, enter Senate Bill 187.
SB 187 is the companion bill for HB 13 and is sponsored by Senator Janice Bowling, from Tullahoma.
Bowling has amended SB 187 to include all of the protections of both HB 10 AND HB 13.
Meaning, the bill would now both secure religious exemptions to vaccines and prevent the state from mandating a vaccine for COVID-19.
To become law, every bill must have a companion bill in both the Senate and House chambers.
And the bill must pass both chambers to become law and also receive a signature from the Governor.
