SR 117 was introduced on 5/24/2023 by Senator Stewart Cathey, Jr. The resolution memorializes the US Congress to pass Senate Bill 29, the AMERICANS Act of 2023 to reinstate any service member removed from any branch of the military for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine. The bill in question is on the federal level, so this resolution is written to help pass the federal legislation.
NVIC does not support vaccine mandates and supports this federal bill, sponsored by Senator Ted Cruz, which would reinstate military service members who were removed from service for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine.
