How long has NY been trying to pass this law?  NJ has been trying to do the same since, from what I know, March 2010, calling it a conscientious exemption, but they haven't had any luck. While this would be wonderful for all of those seeking conscientious exemptions, I don't foresee it happening, not in NJ anyway.  Maybe I am just being pessimisticshrug.gif  Maybe your optimism can rub off on me....What is it that makes you feel it will eventually get passed in NY?

I don't know offhand. I'd have to do some research. But I'm really surprised that New Yorkers have been putting up with the current law for so long. I mean, there are some really educated and wealthy people there. It's just a matter of time for them to say, "this sincerity testing thing is ridiculous, let's do whatever is necessary to stop it."

 

New Jersey law is not nearly as strict. March 2010 is not that long ago. These things take a lot longer than that.

Ma2two: I hear ya....Well, I really, really hope they do pass it for NY.  I think if it does pass, it will bode well for other states.  I'm not sure if the movement in NJ actually started in 2010, as I think groups started a petition for folks in NJ to push for the conscientious exemption starting in 2008.  At least it's nice to hear people are fighting back.  I think the whole "sincerity testing" is a joke too. I can't believe they get away with that.  NJ's law isn't good either though.  To my knowledge, NJ is the only state who mandates an annual flu shot for all children for school entrance. I think that is just insane.
