Last week, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., announced he reintroduced eight bills “that push back on the political left’s anti-American woke agenda.”
“Woke ideology has infected every aspect of American life and culture. It is hurting our kids, tearing apart communities, and weakening our military. Meanwhile, our adversaries are laughing at us. This is crazy and has to stop. I will continue to fight for common sense to be restored to our government and way of life,” Rubio said.
Rubio weighed in on the bills in a post on Medium.
Below is the list of bills Rubio reintroduced:
Mind Your Own Business Act. First introduced in September 2021, this legislation would enable shareholders to hold woke corporations accountable. Specifically, the legislation would require corporate directors to prove their “woke” corporate actions were in their shareholders’ best interest. If they cannot, the board could be held liable for breaching its fiduciary duty to shareholders.
No Tax Breaks for Radical Corporate Activism Act. First introduced in May 2022, this legislation would prohibit employers from deducting expenses related to their employees’ abortion travel costs or so-called “gender affirming care” for young children of their employees. U.S. Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., is championing the bill in the U.S. House.
Safe Passage on Interstates Act. First introduced in September 2022, this legislation would criminalize the dangerous and disruptive practice of protesters blocking interstate highways.

Restoring Military Focus Act. First introduced in November 2022, this legislation would eliminate the position of Chief Diversity Officer (CDO) within the DOD and prohibit federal funds from being used to establish any similar office.
Protecting Students From Racial Hostility Act. First introduced in July 2021, this legislation would protect students from racially-hostile school environments created by the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) by directing the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights to enforce Title VI protections of the Civil Rights Act when a parent or student impacted by CRT submits a complaint.
