A new bill has been introduced by a House Democrat to prevent politicians from having rally attendees sign waivers preventing liability of the campaign for any coronavirus infections.
Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) introduced the bill out of concern about President Donald Trump’s upcoming rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma in a venue that holds more than 19,000 people.
Nearly one million people have requested tickets for the event. Organizers said masks will be offered to attendees and temperatures will be checked before entry.
Pocan’s RALLIES Act would “ban enforcement of liability waivers for indoor gatherings of 1,000 people or more in localities where the number of COVID-19 cases has been increasing in the preceding 14 days,” according to The Hill.
The act will be going nowhere because Democrats lack the majority in the Senate and won’t be able to get the president to sign it, however.
