California Democrats are considering legislation to require people to prove they’re fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before entering indoor public spaces like restaurants, bars, movie theaters, gyms, hotels and stadiums.
The proposal hasn’t been formally introduced in the Legislature, and the timeline for action is unclear.
Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks, D-Oakland, said the coalition of lawmakers supporting the concept has not decided whether to push the plan immediately before the legislative year’s Sept. 10 deadline or wait until January when lawmakers return to work. The Sacramento Bee obtained a copy of the draft legislation, which Wicks said is also subject to change.
Wicks said she is in conversations with business leaders, union representatives and others whose support is necessary for any legislation to be successful.
“I think everyone right now is honestly and earnestly at the table,” Wicks said.
