Gov. Jerry Brown today signed into law one of the toughest school vaccine restrictions in the country.

Guests:

Senator Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), pediatrician and co-sponsor of SB 277, the bill that Gov. Brown signed into law today

Christina Hildebrand, president and founder of A Voice for Choice, a group opposed to the bill.
