Buffy Wicks Transportation Bill Could Become California Vaccine Passport Bill

by ECT

A bill introduced by Buffy Wicks (D-Oakland) aimed to authorize the Bay Area Toll Agency to designate transit-only traffic lanes could be gutted and replaced with a vaccine mandate.

The bill, AB 455, essentially would create a vaccine passport for those who want to go to a hotel, restaurant, movie or gym.  This was done by the “gut-and-amend” process where new legislation replaces an old bill.

The proposal, by Assembly members Buffy Wicks, Akilah Weber (D-San Diego) and Evan Low (D-Campbell) hasn’t yet been introduced in the Legislature nor has the bill been updated on the state website. However, leaked documents have been shared with both the Sacramento Bee and the California Globe and many republicans are now sharing the document.

The bill is still in draft form and Wicks told the LA Times Thursday she didn’t know if the bill would even be introduced at the end of session or in January.

Here is what some Republican lawmakers in Sacramento said:

State Senator Melissa Melendez:

“And there it is, the bill that implements vaccine passports in California. You will be forced to be vaccinated. Your children will be forced to be vaccinated. Rest assured I will fight to defeat AB 455.”

Assemblyman James Gallagher:

“Leaders of one-party rule in CA have introduced a last minute bill (AB 455) to mandate a statewide vaccine passport. I am opposed and will be providing information soon on how you can be part of the process and help defeat this legislation. Language was just released, read it below.”

Assemblyman Kevin Kiley

“I will fight in every way I can to stop AB 455, the “gut and amend” bill requiring vaccination papers to enter a place of business. This is not who we are as a state or a country. Enough.”

Bill is being withheld until 2022 – click her fore statement

Interesting how they haven’t updated their website to announce the bait and switch of the bill, AB-455 which is done by ” gut-and-amend” process where new legislation replaces old bill. In this case the old bill is the transportation bill. This vaccine passport passport enforcement mandate inroduced by Buffy (D-from Oakland ) Akilah Weber( ( D- San Diego ) and Evan Low ( D-Campbell ). Contact your representatives ASAP. This is not a vaccine they call it that vaccine so they can’t be sued! because, it’s under the guides of a ” Vaccine,” but it’s Not it’s “experiment” because there are no case studies behind these these drugs….which are experimental people! It’s supposed to take years of case studies before something can be approved…, yet they’ve done that too! They’ve
just approved Pfizer.😏

ECT Aug 28, 2021 - 9:55 am

Yes… its being gutted and replaced with a new bill.

Palma Espinosa Aug 27, 2021 - 7:49 pm

I am against the mandate of the Covid vaccine.

Amber Aug 27, 2021 - 8:09 pm

Not everyone needs to be vaccinated. I have antibodies, more powerful and effective than a vaccine. I will leave California and millions of others will also!

Anna Aug 28, 2021 - 5:28 pm

I am totally against it

Chris Aug 28, 2021 - 6:34 pm

As you should. A good antibody load is far more effective, and healthy, than the vax.

Steve Aug 31, 2021 - 12:33 pm

Nobody makes any money if you have natural immunity.

Lisa Reed Aug 27, 2021 - 9:05 pm

Wow, this is plain and pure deception at the hands of California’s elected lawmakers. Anyone voting yes on this bill should be immediately removed from office, seriously. And the Authors and Co-Authors of the new amendment to this bill should step down right now – they aren’t the type of people we’d want representing our interests. Covid vaccines, Covid sick time, mandating that private businesses implement their sick and evil agenda and therefore violating our constitutional rights – these things have NOTHING to do with the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge. For shame.

Leaha Aug 27, 2021 - 10:31 pm

Law makers running a muck! Don’t let them get away with it! Did someone say “ mark of the beast”😱

Jaimoe Aug 27, 2021 - 11:06 pm

Rest assured, millions are prepared to fight and die for the freedom of Americans, on American soil.

Connie Aug 27, 2021 - 11:46 pm

Be aware that AB 455 is not the only gutted and amended bill attempting to do this. There is also AB 1102. BOTH need to be defeated if brought to a vote.

David Reed Aug 28, 2021 - 4:11 am

Can people take someone named “Buffy” seriously?

sad sad state Aug 28, 2021 - 8:05 am

Notice the (D) next to the creator’s name…. weird….

Anne murrieta Aug 28, 2021 - 8:38 am

This is absolutely not right. Our freedom to choose and businesses will suffer too. Such a wrong direction to go for the American people.

Christine Frontino Aug 28, 2021 - 11:45 am

Disgusting, unconstitutional, and shocking to the conscience. My family survived Stalin and Hitler. I did not come to America to live under new Stalin or Hitler!! DEFEAT AB455!! Call your representatives ASAP and request that they oppose this bill. NO ON AB455!!!

No Way Aug 29, 2021 - 10:26 am

I did not give the state of California my medical power of attorney. The only person making medical decisions for me is me.

TSG Aug 29, 2021 - 10:31 am

Hopefully voters will see that their actions have changed our government into a totalitarian regime, and vote everybody out at next opportunity.

Lubomyra Aug 30, 2021 - 12:44 am

My family also just barely survived the Stalinist regime! Now, I see that this country is being “Sovietized” by the likes of the Buffys of this country. Definitely, oppose this insane AB455!

LoveableCurmudgeon Aug 30, 2021 - 4:12 am

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. My pwecious fweedoms are being abused by the dastardly plan to make us all get the vaccine. Ow. Ow. Ow. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Somehow, I just KNEW this would drive a lot of folks mad. You poor, poor babies. As our former Governor said, just the other day, ” screw your freedoms. This is about protecting lives and acting like a good citizen”

Brian Medina Aug 30, 2021 - 1:15 pm

So who’s lives are being protected? Anyone can get the virus and transmit it to others, the vaccinated, the unvaccinated, those of us who have antibodies due to having had Covid……the goal is to reduce the negative response to the virus over time. And we can accomplish this via natural immunity and voluntary vaccination. NO POLICE STATE TACTICS. [email protected]

T. Aug 30, 2021 - 8:13 am

This is SO very, very wrong. Any representative who would push for this bill needs to be removed from office.

Angie Aug 30, 2021 - 10:32 am

This Bill violates HIPPA, Medical Choice, and our Civil Rights!. And yes, many will fight back with lawsuits or leave this state.

BABA YAGA Aug 30, 2021 - 3:59 pm

I don’t think Buffy thought this situation through more carefully. Good think that it got gutted.

Rough rider Aug 31, 2021 - 6:55 am

Yes agreed we all need to fight back! Whether vaccinated or un vaccinated ,cause there going to implicates more laws whats after this! There coming for all of us!

POLITICAL SHARK Sep 1, 2021 - 7:20 pm

Buffy needs some “buffing” — but not from me!

Greg Sep 2, 2021 - 11:44 am

This bill violates CalGina “California Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act” You cannot make a law that Violates a Congressional passed act. PERIOD. People need to start filing lawsuits against anybody that is requiring Vaccines to enjoy your freedoms. ORGANIZE
Oh…. and MASKS DON’T WORK!
