Thank you for tracking with us over the last few weeks as we’ve kept close watch on the progression of HB 19-1312, School Immunization Requirements.
(Side note: The journey of a bill from the original proposal to law is quite a process. If you’re curious to learn about each step, visit this page and find the section on a visual for how a bill becomes a law.)
Current status of HB 19-1312 as of today: The second reading in the House was laid over again. It will most likely be scheduled for Monday, April 22nd. The third reading (date TBD) will then include a vote on the House floor.
Your part: If we want to defeat this bill we MUST stay active to oppose it. Call and email all Representatives and voice your opposition. Also, plan to attend the Senate hearing (date TBD) and prepare to present testimony. Visit the action page for detailed help on following these steps.
