The Press-Enterprise

California lawmakers Monday, June 29, sent the governor a bill that would impose one of the strictest school vaccination laws in the country in response to a measles outbreak at the Disney theme parks earlier this year. The Senate reaffirmed the bill eliminating California’s immunization exemption for personal or religious beliefs on a 24-14 vote. Only two states, Mississippi and West Virginia, have such strict requirements in place.
