Rhode Island Democrats have introduced a bill that would double the state income tax for residents who have unvaccinated children.
Condition Senator Samuel Bell (D) submitted the punitive expenses last month, which purchases all Rhode Island inhabitants and taxpayers over sixteen years old to receive the COVID-19 injection and boosters required by the state’s director from the department of health.
Anybody who violates that order “ will owe twice the amount of individual income taxes” to the condition.
This act would requirement all residents sixteen (16) years or older to be vaccinated against COVID-19. In case a resident is under sixteen (16) years of age the citizen would be required to be immunized against COVID-19, with the responsibility for ensuring compliance falling on all parents or even guardians with medical permission powers.
Additionally any person who have violates this chapter would be required to pay a monthly civil penalty of $ 50 ($50. 00) and would owe twice the amount of individual income taxes.
In order for parents to receive an exemption for a minor, they are going to need to have three different doctors state on record the child is “ not fit for immunization” and the kid themselves will have to sign the form.
Additionally , the state’s health department may have the power to investigate any petition for exemption.
Bell pointed to a survey conducted by Harvard, Northeastern, Northwestern and Rutgers Universities to justify the statewide vaccine mandate, claiming 65% of residents support this.
With @DanMcGowan reporting that Rhode Islanders still strongly assistance a universal vaccine requirement, despite the McKee Administration pressing hard for the surrender policy, it’s time for us to pass my mandate bill. Cases are rising again. Surrender isn’t working. pic. twitter. com/hxXkgF8bcG

What Bell fails to mention is that the survey can be conducted with “ nonprobability sampling”, which is more difficult to rely on than random sampling because it’s prone to selection bias, and therefore less likely to symbolize the larger population.
Additionally , the nonprobability sampling was drawn from individuals in all 50 states rather than within Rhode Island by itself.
Though this particular draconian bill clearly violates the bodily autonomy associated with Rhode Islanders, Democrats may still succeed in pushing the particular bill through given they have a 33-5 supermajority within the state senate and a 65-10 supermajority in the House.
Notably, all 38 state senate seats are up for reelection in the 2022 midterms, as well as all 75 seats in the House.
