The state House of Representatives voted 112-89 Wednesday to pass a bill that would bar state, county and local governments and colleges from requiring a proof of COVID-19 vaccine to enter or use their facilities.

The bill would also eviscerate the state Department of Health from issuing the type of broad public health orders seen in the coronavirus pandemic.

The Republican-backed legislation, amended in the House Tuesday to clarify that it would apply to all of Pennsylvania’s private colleges and universities, next faces a final ratification vote in the Senate, which could come later this week.
