Republican Rep. Sandy Salmon was one of two GOP members of the Iowa House to express disappointment in the lack of action protecting Iowans from employer vaccine mandates during Tuesday’s special legislative session.
Salmon, who spoke following Rep. Jon Jacobsen, noted there were many constituents from all over Iowa who showed up at the Capitol for a rally against vaccine mandates earlier in the day.
“They’re so many and I’ve gotten email after email literally begging us to protect their freedom, to be able to choose their own healthcare treatment and not risk losing their job,” Salmon said. “I was hopeful that we could do something in this special session, but now we’ve still got to work on it and I hope that work really expedites along really fast.”
The Iowa legislature did nothing on Tuesday to help Iowans who are staring at COVID vaccine employer mandates.
