California Bill That Would Mandate COVID-19 Jab on All Workers Put on Hold by Author After Severe Backlash


Californians fighting for medical freedom earned a small, temporary victory in their war against the state’s medical tyrants.

Democrat Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks (Oakland), the author of AB 1993, announced the bill would not move forward after severe backlash by public safety unions.

The bill would mandate all California businesses to require proof of COVID-19 inoculation for employees and independent contractors.

The only exceptions would be for workers who obtain an exemption for religious or medical reasons. Those with an approved exemption would have to undergo regular COVID testing.

California Democrat Assemblywoman Proposes Bill That Requires ALL Workers to be Fully Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Here is the announcement to hold AB 1993:

While this medical authoritarian whined her tyrannical bill won’t move forward, California Republican assemblyman Kevin Kiley celebrated the win.

The Sacramento Bee reported:

California Democrats are holding a bill that would have mandated COVID-19 vaccines for employees, citing opposition from public safety unions.

Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks, D-Oakland, on Tuesday announced she is postponing Assembly Bill 1993, which would require workers to provide proof of COVID vaccination by Jan. 1, 2023. Workplaces that do not follow the mandate would face penalties from the state.

AB 1993 was scheduled for a hearing before the Labor and Employment Committee on Wednesday afternoon.


Wicks specifically cited opposition from public safety unions and said she hopes “they will ultimately come to the table to make sure all of their workers are vaccinated, and that every job sector in California has the tools necessary to keep their workers safe from COVID-19.”

About 74% of Californians age 5 and older are fully vaccinated against COVID, according to California Department of Public Health data.

California already requires some employees, including health care and state workers, to get COVID vaccines or submit to regular testing.

But Wicks’ bill would apply to all employees, even independent contractors.

This is the second time Wicks has backed legislation to mandate vaccines for employees. Last year, she was part of a group of legislators working on a similar bill, although they eventually dropped it in August.
