Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) introduced legislation Tuesday so that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) does not require passengers to present proof that they have received a coronavirus vaccine for domestic flights and that the privacy of personal health information protects.
According to the text of the bill, dubbed “freedom to fly actThe “law” would prevent the Transportation Security Administration from asking passengers on domestic flights for information about vaccinations.
After the coronavirus pandemic, Scott said Statement on Tuesday that smooth measures and travel are “critical to fully reopening our economy.”
“While I continue to encourage everyone who wants one to get a vaccine, the federal government has no business requiring passengers to turn over their personal medical information to catch a flight,” said Scott. “The My Freedom to Fly Act ensures that families in Florida and across the country can travel freely and without the ridiculous government bureaucracy created by vaccine passports.”
Several states – including Florida, Alabama, Texas, Alaska, Georgia, Arizona and Wyoming – have moved to restrict some form of coronavirus vaccine passports or documentation.
In May, Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed on Law to ban vaccine passports, Floridians’ “personal choice with respect to vaccination will be protected and no business or government entity will be able to deny you services based on your decision.”
