Texas--Bill Repealing Immunization Exemption Likely Dead

----------------------------------------------------------------------
From the HSLDA E-lert Service...
----------------------------------------------------------------------

July 11, 2003

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Thank you for your calls on House Bill 89. They have made an impact!
Representative Capelo, the sponsor of the bill and the chairman of
the Public Health Committee, confirmed for us today that this bill
will probably not pass out of committee.

The only way H.B. 89 will come before the full House is if the
governor extends the call of this special session to include it.

In the meantime, parents have the ability to claim a conscientious or
religious exemption to immunization requirements. They no longer must
abide by the restrictive requirement of proving that immunizations
are against the tenants of their denomination or church.

We will continue to monitor this special legislative session and will
keep you informed as to any updates.

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel
