Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) and seven other Republican Congressmen introduced "The Service Restoration Act" on Tuesday to allow reinstatement for military service members that were discharged for not receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
The bill also seeks to "prohibit adverse action against a member of the Armed Forces who refuses to receive a vaccination against COVID-19."
"Because of President Biden's power-hungry, anti-science COVID-19 vaccine mandate, hundreds of valuable American service members are being forced out of our military, taking with them years of subject-matter expertise, careers of selfless sacrifice, and lifelong dreams of military service. This is strategically foolish, profoundly unamerican, and completely unacceptable," Roy said in a statement.
"I introduced the Service Restoration Act to ensure that the brave men and women of our armed forces are not fired over this wrong-headed mandate — whether it be for a medical, religious, conscientious or any reason — and that those already dismissed are able to get back to honorably serving their country with their time of service and their records rightfully restored."
This bill comes amid ongoing legal battles in the U.S. over the Biden Administration's COVID vaccine mandate.
Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against the Biden administration's vaccine mandate for "large employers."
