California ‘gut-and-amend’ bill on vaccine mandate fails

AB 455 was originally meant to regulate the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, but a ‘gut-and-amend’ move would’ve turned it into a vaccine mandate

“This chilling legislation would have created a ‘show me your papers’ society without any precedent in American history,” Assemblyman Kevin Kiley, a Republican and candidate to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom in the upcoming recall election, told Fox News Wednesday. 

In a separate tweet, Kiley said the bill “is dead for the year,” while warning that it could resurface in the next session if Newsom overcomes the recall effort.

“Our victory over AB 455 will be short-lived if we don’t keep up the pressure and elect a Governor who understands the Constitution is more than a piece of paper,” he wrote.
