Legislation Affecting Public Entities

Act 977 prohibits state and local governments from requiring vaccinations against the virus as a condition of employment or for members of the public to access services.

Act 1002 sought to prevent public entities from enacting local mask mandates. A preliminary injunction against the enforcement of Act 1002 was issued on August 6, 2021 by Judge Tim Fox of the Pulaski County Circuit Court pending the outcome of the trial. On December 29, 2021 Judge Fox issued a ruling declaring Act 1002 unconstitutional.
