H.R. 6666, the COVID-19 Testing, Reaching And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act, was introduced and referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, May 1, 2020, by Rep. Bobby Rush, D-III
The bill, had it passed, would have authorized the CDC to award grants for testing, contact tracing, monitoring and other activities to address COVID-19
The government grants — $100 billion of taxpayer money for 2020 alone — would be used by “eligible entities” to hire employees and buy the supplies needed to conduct testing and contact tracing, including sending employees to the residences of citizens to conduct COVID-19 testing
H.R. 6666 did not ensure privacy. It also was setting the stage for multiple violations of our constitutional rights, including the Fourth, Fifth, Eighth and Ninth amendments
Contact your Congressional representative today, and ask them to oppose any bills similar to H.R. 6666 when and if they are introduced again
