Newsom's California vaccine bill changes surprise backers

Assemblyman Devon Mathis, R-Visalia, urges lawmakers to reject a measure to tighten the rules on giving exemptions for vaccinations at the Capitol in Sacramento, Calif., Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2019. The Assembly approved the bill SB 276, by state Sen. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, that would give state public health officials oversight of doctors who give more than five medical exemptions annually and schools with vaccination rates less than 95%. It still needs a final approval in the state Senate.
