Freshman State Representative Jennifer Gross (Dist. 52 West Chester) joins EmpowerU to discuss various issues including the contentious House Bill 248. House Bill 248, the Vaccine Choice and Anti-Discrimination Act, authored by Representative Gross who is joined by fifteen co-sponsors in the Ohio House from across the state. This bill would prohibit the imposition of a “vaccine mandate” and carrying a “vaccine passport” in order for Ohioans to work, exercise or enter public buildings. Proposed legislation in Ohio has rarely caused such a dramatic separation of viewpoints among legislators, businesses, and Ohioans. After Ohioans have lived under lockdowns, mask restrictions and a mandatory vaccination scheme for more than a year, House Bill 248 attempts to bridge the divide between safety precautions taken on behalf of the public “Common Good” and the very basis of individual liberty and personal responsibility.
