Legislature passes pioneering vaccine bill to Calif. governor
San Francisco Business Times

A pioneering and emotionally charged bill to require vaccinations for nearly all children has advanced to Gov. Jerry Brown following a Senate vote Monday.

The bill is not only important for children and schools, but also the economy, supporters contend. Businesses should care about Senate Bill 277 because it seeks to keep employees and customers safe from disease outbreak, said Sen. Richard Pan, a Sacramento Democrat and author of the bill.
