    Bill to establish legislative oversight of the Governor's executive orders, certain public health orders, and emergency rules, including by establishing the Ohio Health Oversight and Advisory Committee. While SB22 passed into law, HB90 was better language and OhioAMF would like to see HB90 passed into law in a way that it amended SB22 to improve the code. Read more about the bill.
  • Watching Ohio House Bill 425 (expired)
    Bill to prohibit certain actions related to COVID-19 and genetic technologies. While HB425 aims to reduce vaccine choice discrimination in Ohio, this bill would only apply to "vaccines" utilizing "messenger ribonucleic acid, deoxyribonucleic acid, or any other genetic vaccine technology".OhioAMF believes that vaccine choice bills should protect all Ohioans in all circumstances, as such, we support HB248. We are waiting to see how this bill evolves before making further determinations regarding our support or opposition to the bill. Read more about the bill.
  • Watching Ohio House Bill 411 (expired)
    Bill to prohibit mandatory disclosures related to an individual's COVID-19 vaccination status, to name the act the Individual Privacy and Anti-Discrimination Act, and to declare an emergency. While HB411 aims to reduce vaccine choice discrimination in Ohio, OhioAMF's analysis of the bill is that it is a much weaker version of Ohio House Bill 248, and OhioAMF fully supports HB248. We are waiting to see how this bill evolves before making further determinations regarding our support or opposition to the bill. Read more about the bill.
  • Watching Ohio House Bill 401 (expired)
    Bill to exempt an injury or disability caused by an employer-mandated COVID-19 vaccination from the Workers' Compensation Law and to allow the employee to sue the employer for damages. While HB401 would make a good effort at reducing vaccine choice discrimination in Ohio, since employers would assume liability for vaccine-related injuries to employees as a result of employer-mandated vaccines, OhioAMF believes that employers shouldn't be permitted to mandate vaccines to begin with, such as the protections provided within HB248. We are waiting to see how this bill evolves before making further determinations regarding our support or opposition to the bill. Read more about the bill.
  • Watching Ohio House Bill 388 (expired)
    Bill to prohibit taking certain actions against an individual because the individual refuses to be vaccinated against a disease. While HB288 would make a good effort at reducing vaccine choice discrimination in Ohio, OhioAMF believes that vaccine choice bills should protect all Ohioans in all circumstances, as such, we support HB248. We are waiting to see how this bill evolves before making further determinations regarding our support or opposition to the bill. Read more about the bill.
  • Watching Ohio House Bill 202 (expired)
    Bill to prohibit state mask mandates during the current state of emergency. Our concern is that this bill is that it doesn't protect our mask choice from county, township, city, or other local jurisdictions, or from private sector requirements by employers, businesses, etc. Additionally, per the bill, if made law, it would only apply to the current state of emergency, and would not apply to future emergency orders. Read more about the bill.

OhioAMF believes that the Governor and Ohio health agencies should have limited powers to declare emergencies and health orders. Repealing SB 22 is the wrong direction. SB 22 should be strengthened.
