Current Bill Summary

SB 952 - This act prohibits the passage or implementation of any law, order, ordinance, regulation, or public policy of the state or any political subdivision of the state, including schools and institutions of higher education that receive public funds, that infringes upon the unquestionable right of individuals to refuse any medical procedure or treatment, including, but not limited to, injections, vaccines, or prophylactics. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged to any person in this state because of the exercise of this right. Nothing in this act shall be interpreted to infringe upon a parent's right to exercise control over their minor, unemancipated child's physical and mental care.

This provision is substantially similar to SJR 20 (2023), SJR 47 (2022), and SJR 50 (2022).

Additionally, no licensed or registered health care facility shall require visitors to undergo an invasive medical procedure, including an injection or vaccine, in order to have in-person contact with a patient or resident.
