Assembly Bill 885: Improves Immunization Exemption

Author:
Sponsored by Assemblyman Acampora, Alfano, Errigo, McDonough

Summary:
This bill would have permitted a parent to have a personal objection to immunizations, medical testing, and treatments. This bill would have made it much easier for a parent to object to mandatory immunizations for their children. Assembly Bill 885 would have created a “philosophical exemption” in addition to the current medical and religious exemptions. This bill was identical to Senate Bill 305.

Status:

01/18/2005Referred to Assembly Committee on Health.
06/24/2005Assembly adjourned and is at the call of the Speaker. (Likely closed for the rest of the year).
06/23/2006Legislature is Closed

Since this bill was not reported from a standing committee, the Committee on Health, it will be reintroduced in January, 2006.

Action Requested:
No action is necessary at this time.

HSLDA's Position:
This bill is supported.
