Spoke to my reps office today (Bob Young) they said he fully supports hb 248. I’m facing a mandatory shot myself and reps office said they are doing research to see what can be done to prevent that before the bill goes through the process but I’m not holding my breath.

Any approximate timeline on this? I assume it would still be another 60 days after passage even if Deswine were to sign it?

Can you just produce a fake vaccine card? My guess is that they're only interested in "checking the box".

If you are not a patient with them requiring care related to the vaccine I don't think they are permitted to access the DB simply for employment purposes.  I know other employers are not.

Does it have a veto proof majority? Cause you know little Mikey will veto that shit. He's itching to implement masks across Ohio and pushing vaccines still but he can't without getting smacked

Ouch. Here's another thought... go "travel" to Florida and get "vaccinated". They don't do electronic medical records down there, right? So then wouldn't the card (however one gets one's hands on it) be the only "proof" of vaccination? Just a little creative thinking in trying to help. It sucks that employers think they should have the right to mandate medical treatments for their employees.

I looked that up since I am in FL often.  Thats a no go.  Florida has FloridaSHOTS which is their vaccine registration program.  Too bad, had my hopes up!

I've called Rep. Lipps (actually spoke to someone there)
Rep Holmes
Rep Bird
Rep Cutrona
Rep Ginter
Rep Gross (no push needed here!)
Rep Manchester
Rep Plummer
Rep Stewart
Rep White
and
Rep Young

Figured the Democrats wouldn't vote for this regardless.

Humm, Rep Manchester called back and said there will be no vote till "some things are worked out"  Hope Stivers isnt getting his claws into people.  Although Rep. Manchester is in support of the bill.  She said there was a press release yesterday that explained it....off to look for that

Here's something:
"In a statement issued Monday, House Speaker Bob Cupp, R-Lima, said: "This legislation is important to many members of this caucus. Due to the high interest in the bill, we have directed (House Health Committee) Chairman (Scott) Lipps to have one hearing, which will take place on Tuesday, August 24, with no amendments or votes. We will then pause hearings on House Bill 248 while we work with the chairman, the bill’s sponsor, and all interested parties on this important issue.”"

Damn it


Call Rep. Cupp and get this thing moving again!

Why hasn't this been voted on yet? Or in typical fashion, are the corrupt politicians trying to attach unrelated addons to put money in their masters pockets?

This is from 2 weeks ago from cleveland.com so take it with a grain of salt:

"Ohio’s Business Republicans and County-Seat Republicans are at war over COVID-19 vaccination. The Business Republicans likely will win — they usually do at the Statehouse — but the Rank-and-File Republicans aren’t going anywhere, and they know how to nurse a grievance."


Looks like Tibri and Stivers are couching hard to stop this.

Keep hammering the phone lines and emails.
Even though what Biden did was reprehensible and unconstitutional, it may
Light a fire under those fence sitters in our state house.

Blazer just asked about republicans who are paying lip service to it, but are beholden to corporate interests.  

"Government responds to pain".  "call them everyday, twice a day"  If the citizens of Ohio call and tell them to sign the discharge petition.

!! BREAKING !!
Your Calls Have Brought Out the Bully Tactics in Your Ohio Government
After hours, at 6:40p.m. last night, an email went out to all republican members of the House telling them do not listen to the will of your district and work on legislation to stop the Covid mandates and do not sign the discharge petition. Do not act on the wishes of the people calling and emailing your office who do not wish to be force vaccinated. "We" will decide what should be done about mandatory vaccines and will tell you what to do in the coming weeks.
 The Republican leadership has actually told the Republican members, by way of a "Caucus recommendation" email, don’t sign the discharge petition. WOW. What bullies.
Rep. Nino Vitale

To: House GOP Members
From: House Majority Leadership
September 14, 2021
Thank you to all of you who have reached out to the Majority Leadership team with questions and concerns regarding the recent vaccine mandate announcement from the Biden Administration and the discharge petition for House Bill 248.  None of us have taken this issue lightly.  We understand that some members are unaware on how our chamber plans to proceed legislatively, and how they should handle the flow of incoming questions regarding both the status of House Bill 248 and the recent discharge petition.
Our entire Majority Leadership team has recognized that House Bill 248, in its present form, remains problematic and lacks a consensus across our caucus.  This is why we made the collective decision to pause committee hearings in favor of finding an alternate pathway forward.  In the coming days, we intend to share a framework with the caucus for its consideration and input.  It is our goal to strike a balance between honoring one’s personal medical freedom while protecting the health and safety of Ohioans.
Our goal as a caucus should be to achieve policies that have a realistic path forward.
Our recommendation to members is to refrain from committing to any COVID-related legislation or signing the discharge petition until we are able to present our framework to the entire
caucus.  We expect, prior to next week’s session, to reach out to members individually with further details.

Update: I got a call back from the Speaker's office, ...I had a fairly long conversation with the aide expressing the concerns, urgency, and the leadership letter.  

They are hearing what we are saying, ...they want to ensure they have the needed support in both houses, possibly consolidate stuff from multiple similar bills, and possibly have assurance the Governor would sign, in going forward.  The aide wasn't really clear on what/how that is going to take shape (i.e. new Bill, amended bill, etc.), but said they'd be putting out info on what that will be soon.  I expressed the urgency in getting something done, and also told them they need to do a much better job in communicating what is going on...

...I continue to urge everyone to call/email Speaker Cupp's office and their Rep, ...and don't forget the light fires under your Senators as well to work w/ the house in getting it done...

Seems like we got the same call.  He stared off by apologizing that even though they had received multiple calls from me, they were just getting back now.  Basically sounds like they're trying to push Rep. Gross's bill under the bus.  He said something about a few other bills: SB 169 from Sen. Brenner (which is a decent bill, but not close to being ready),
HB 350 from Rep. Petrino
and
HB 253 which basically just stops companies from asking about your vax status.  WHich I guess is ok, but with the over reach, not good enough in my opinion, which I told him.  

Told him that off all the bills which is closest and which has the best chance of being passed by both the house and senate with a veto proo majority.  Which really is the issue.  Right now, none of them.  Well, then need to go with the closest since tings are ramping up and moving quicker and quicker.

Damn politics!

Spoke to an Aide in Rep. Dean's office. The Aide that is usually there has been sick...but she took note of my concerns, let me know the phone has been lite up over HB248, suggested I also call Speaker Cupp's office, and I let her know that I had already done so.
HB248 will be brought to the floor next Tuesday for discussion, so we need to keep hammering those phones.

RE: House Bill 248 Discharge Motion
DATE: September 14, 2021
In June, the Ohio Chamber testified before the House Health Committee in opposition to House Bill 248, legislation that would make sweeping changes to Ohio’s vaccination laws. We did so again during the August 24 meeting of the Health Committee.
The Ohio Chamber opposes HB 248 because it inserts government into the middle of the employer-employee relationship...

Here is an Example of How the Columbus Machine, Lobbyists and Organizations Bully Elected Officials and Defraud the Average Voting Citizen.

Just since yesterday, some republican representatives have already decided that they do not intend to sign the HB248 discharge petition since this letter came out and they will not act contrary to the position of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce.

Talk about fate.....so, we had Dean's Plumbing in a few weeks back to do some work...
Got a call from Rep.Dean's wife asking if we wouldn't mind putting a yard son out front for her son....
I told her that I had called her husband's office a number of times and left messages regarding HB248. I asked if he would support the bill, and she said she believes he's a co-sponsor, and is a big supporter of personal choice.
None of his family have had the vaccine and plan on getting it. The crazy thing is, his family is related to my Wife's....which I threw out there...
I told her to bring the sign on over...
Keep on applying thr pressure...
