Lawmakers pass bill allowing federal vaccine mandate exemptions
KSL.com reports the bill allows for personal, medical, and religious exemptions and protects employees from retaliation if they claim one.
Sponsors of the bill, Sen. Kirk Cullimore and Rep. Mike Schultz, say the measure is not perfect. However, they believe it is a good place to start.
The legislation also prohibits employers from keeping employee vaccination records on file.
The State of Utah is a party to a lawsuit against the federal government regarding the vaccine mandate.
A federal appeals court temporarily stopped the vaccine mandate Saturday.
