At a time when California is gripped in one of the worst measles outbreaks in recent history, several lawmakers are pushing for new legislation that would ensure more children are protected against measles and other transmittable diseases.

California Sen. Barbara Boxer joined state Sen. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, a pediatrician, on Wednesday on a tour of a Head Start center in Emeryville, where every child is vaccinated, to address the importance of vaccinations for children as young as preschool.
