Controversial California Vaccination Bill Heads to Governor's Desk

California lawmakers on Monday sent the governor a contentious bill that would impose one of the strictest school vaccination laws in the country after a series of emotionally charged debates.
The Senate reaffirmed the bill striking California’s personal belief exemption for immunizations in a 24-14 vote. Mississippi and West Virginia are the only two states with such strict requirements in place. Democratic governor Jerry Brown has not said if he would sign it.
Governor’s spokesman Evan Westrup has repeated in recent days
“The governor believes that vaccinations are profoundly important and a major public health benefit, and any bill that reaches his desk will be closely considered."
