Three state lawmakers Wednesday proposed ditching the law that allows parents to not vaccinate their children based on "personal belief."
State Senators Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) and Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica) say they will introduce legislation that will repeal the Personal Belief Exemption. Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) has signed on as a co-author.
Back in Washington D.C., U.S. Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Barbara Boxer (D-CA) also urged California’s Health and Human Services Secretary to reconsider the state policy allowing exemptions.
