A state lawmaker wants to make sure you are protected against coronavirus vaccination discrimination.

The proposal would keep employers from taking adverse action against employees for refusing to get vaccinated.

State Rep. Chip Brown says his bill is needed because that protection does not exist under current law.

Brown's proposed bill would also prohibit a ticket issuer from denying entry to an entertainment event based on your immunization status.
