Bill to remove ‘personal beliefs’ exemption for vaccinations dies in House
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — An effort to remove personal or philosophical opposition to vaccines as an authorized exemption from childhood school immunizations died in the House after failing to come up for a vote before a key deadline. Rep. June Robinson, a Democrat from Everett who sponsored the bill, said she just didn't have the votes needed before the 5 p.m. Wednesday deadline.
