On Monday the Arkansas Senate passed three bills addressing COVID-19 vaccine mandates in Arkansas.
The first was S.B. 739 by Sen. Kim Hammer and Rep. Joshua Bryant.
The second was S.B. 730 by Sen. Trent Garner.
The third was S.B. 732 by Sen. Blake Johnson.
S.B. 732 prohibits coercing another person into receiving a COVID-19 vaccine if the person has a religious, philosophical, or medical objection to the vaccine. The bill is similar to current Arkansas law regarding immunization mandates and exemptions for students. You Can Read The Bill Here. You Can See How Your Senator Voted Here.
