Nashville’s ABC News affiliate reports:
A piece of legislation proposing to go against any federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate was postponed in the COVID-19 Committee today during the general assembly’s third extraordinary session.
The “COVID-19 Health Care Liberty Jurisdiction Act,” proposed by Representative Bud Hulsey (R- Kingsport) essentially goes against any COVID-19 vaccine mandate and would likely invite a lawsuit by the federal government.
As he was defending his proposed bill before the COVID-19 Committee Thursday, Hulsey made the claim that the COVID vaccine isn’t a “vaccine” unless it guarantees 100% that the inoculated person would not be infected.

Rep. Bud Hulsey proposed a bill to stop a COVID vax mandate in Tennessee at the special session. Constitutional Law Expert Stewart Harris tells me this could be unconstitutional when the feds impose the requirement. The bill will not be voted on during the special session @WJHL11 pic.twitter.com/VCh9xDUgxW
