Privileges are going to come trickling back in no time once you get your Vaccine Passport / Green Pass / Immunity Certificate / whatever you want to call it! Just one or two inoculations per year of experimental, TOTALLY NECESSARY serums keeps your passport fresh, permitting you to buy food, do banking, travel, cross borders and more! Now get jabbin', peasant!

This is a short video of the discussion on the floor before the vote. You can read particularities of the bill here (http://laws.leg.mt.gov/legprd/LAW0203W$BSRV.ActionQuery?P_SESS=20211&P_BLTP_BILL_TYP_CD=HB&P_BILL_NO=702&P_BILL_DFT_NO=&P_CHPT_NO=&Z_ACTION=Find&P_ENTY_ID_SEQ2=&P_SBJT_SBJ_CD=&P_ENTY_ID_SEQ=)SBJT_SBJ_CD=&P_ENTY_ID_SEQ=).
I'm a little concerned that the bill was amended by the Governor to specify that this bill really only applies to experimental vaccines or vaccines undergoing safety trials (read for yourself https://leg.mt.gov/bills/2021/billhtml/HB0702.htm).
For your reading:
Section 1. Discrimination based on vaccination status or possession of immunity passport prohibited -- definitions. (1) Except as provided in subsection (2), it is an unlawful discriminatory practice for:

(a) a person or a governmental entity to refuse, withhold from, or deny to a person any local or state services, goods, facilities, advantages, privileges, licensing, educational opportunities, health care access, or employment opportunities based on the person's vaccination status or whether the person has an immunity passport;

(b) an employer to refuse employment to a person, to bar a person from employment, or to discriminate against a person in compensation or in a term, condition, or privilege of employment based on the person's vaccination status or whether the person has an immunity passport; or

(c) a public accommodation to exclude, limit, segregate, refuse to serve, or otherwise discriminate against a person based on the person's vaccination status or whether the person has an immunity passport.

(2) This section does not apply to vaccination requirements set forth for schools pursuant to Title 20, chapter 5, part 4, or day-care facilities pursuant to Title 52, chapter 2, part 7.

(3) A person, governmental entity, or an employer does not unlawfully discriminate under this section if they recommend that an employee receive a vaccine.

(4) An individual may not be required to receive any vaccine whose use is allowed under an emergency use authorization or any vaccine undergoing safety trials.
