The Republican Party of San Luis Obispo County Strongly Opposes HR 6666 A Bill Furthering Unwarranted Invasion Into Our Civil Liberties
by the Federal Government


WHEREAS an alarming new federal bill has surfaced in the US House of Representatives with potentially devastating implications to your privacy rights and ability to choose how you care for yourself and your children;
WHEREAS H.R. 6666 is a federal bill that allocates $100 billion annually to deploy a massive force of surveillance workers to test, contact trace and enforce the quarantine of men, women and children in the United States who are thought to be infected — or potentially infected — with COVID-19;
WHEREAS according to the bill, those hired will conduct diagnostic testing and “related activities such as contact tracing through mobile health units and, as necessary, at individuals’ residences, and for other purposes;”
WHEREAS the bill uses broad, open-ended language and fails to specify what “related activities” or “for other purposes” are; such ambiguity creates the opportunity for an abuse of power, particularly during times of crises;
WHEREAS the activities stemming from this legislation infringe on individuals’ ability to opt out of unwanted surveillance and potentially mandated medical interventions such as testing, treatment and vaccination;
WHEREAS deploying federal workers to individuals’ homes encroaches on their privacy and raises numerous questions;
WHEREAS vast majority of people oppose the use of taxpayer funds for total citizen surveillance measures that violate health freedom rights;
WHEREAS HR 6666 represents a further unwarranted incursion into our civil liberties by the federal government; now therefore, be it

RESOLVED, that the Republican Party of San Luis Obispo County (RPSLOC) strongly opposes HR 6666

and urges Representative Salud Carbajal, as well as Senators Diane Feinstein and Kamala Harris to vote

no on this dangerous legislation, HR 6666.
