The Business and Labor Committee will be meeting Monday, October 4 at 9:00 a.m. at the Capitol Complex in House Building, Room 30
This meeting is being called specifically to discuss the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate or weekly COVID-19 testing requirements. As the administration moves forward with its action plan, the committee chairs believe this is a timely and sensitive matter that needs to be discussed with committee members and those most affected.
All perspectives from Utah’s impacted business community, including employers, employees and stakeholders are encouraged to voice their opinions, whether for or against the mandate. The committee is dedicated to conducting the meeting in an impartial manner and will provide Utahns the opportunity to be on the formal legislative record.
There are several ways to participate.
*GIVE STRATEGIC PUBLIC COMMENT*
Businesses, employers, employees and stakeholders impacted by the mandate should plan to comment. We need testimony about how this will impact people's health and livelihood.
We need personal testimony about any adverse reactions ANYONE has ever had to the vaccine. In addition we need testimony from those who should not get the vaccine due to a medical condition or even if you have had a rash from a previous vaccine, that is an adverse reaction and you should not be forced to get the vaccine. If you are allergic to any of the ingredients, you shouldn't get the vaccine.
We need members of the heavily impacted medical community, and those who have witnessed the negative health effects of the vaccine to give testimony.
Comments will be limited to TWO minutes. Strategic public comment is crucial! People should not repeat what others have said. Write several versions of a two minute comment and be ready to change what you say as needed to highlight new points. Please be kind and respectful in your words.
Arrive at 8:00. Park on the east side of the capital. The House Building is on the West side of the property, to the west of the fountain. Room 30 is in the basement.
Virtual Public Comment will be allowed at the committee chair’s discretion.
