 Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C., introduced a bill Tuesday that would prevent the federal government from tracking information on individuals who receive a religiousexemption to the coronavirus vaccine.

The bill comes after the Pretrial Services Agency (PSA) for the District of Columbia – a federal entity – announced a system recording "personal religious information" of employees with "religious accommodation requests for religious exception from the federally mandated vaccination requirement."

In a statement to Fox News Digital, Norman said: "The ability for individuals to openly practice their faith without fear of retribution is a precious right we must guard closely."
