HARRISBURG, Pa. — A bill banning vaccine passports in Pennsylvania was passed Wednesday in the Republican-controlled Pennsylvania Senate.
The legislation passed on party lines with a 29-20 vote. It now heads to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
Under the bill, state agencies, counties, municipalities and school districts would be prohibited from requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
The bill would not apply to private businesses or organizations.
Gov. Tom Wolf has said he will veto the bill if it passes.
