It is based mostly on the original from Fremont. I think that this bill takes away the threat of job insecurity for just having fun.

Specifically it limits screenings for jobs that are only urgent to be tested, mainly in high-risk and physically demanding fields of first responders and medical workers.

I don't have anything to add other than I echo Mr. Reactionary's response.
