Texas Congressman Crenshaw Introduces Anti-Lockdown Legislation
The End Lockdowns Now Act is a step in the right direction.
However, the inclusion of 319 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 247d) and section 361 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 264) is way off track, and must be eliminated in order to meet authentic Constitutional purpose and intent; government by, of, and for The People, not in the hands of individuals, governors, or inside the domain of illegitimate, unelected, bureaucratic government agencies such as the CDC. -JD

End Lockdowns Now Act requires states, localities to submit reopening plans to qualify for recovery aid
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) today introduced new legislation to end disastrous economic lockdowns that were imposed unilaterally largely by local Democrat leaders in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The End Lockdowns Now Act would require states and localities to submit economic reopening plans in order to qualify for COVID recovery aid. Crenshaw’s legislation also ensures that the president cannot impose national lockdowns or bans on interstate travel.
“Unscientific, unconstitutional economic lockdowns have destroyed millions of lives and countless small businesses. They have zero benefit to public health, but massive costs to local economies and livelihoods. That’s why we need to end lockdowns for good,” said Crenshaw. “My bill requires that states and localities – with the input of small businesses and communities – submit reopening plans in order to qualify for recovery fund assistance. My bill also clarifies federal law to deny the President authority to issue a nationwide lockdown or impose blanket bans on interstate travel. The American people have suffered long enough under authoritarian lockdowns. We must end them now and work to ensure they never happen again. That’s exactly what my bill does.”
