De facto, not de jure, this is all ready in place.

@Turquesa I think this link will get you to the recordings. Not sure how to link to specific ones but it was heard on the senate floor yesterday, so the 22nd.

http://www.leg.state.co.us/clics/clics2014A/cslFrontPages.nsf/Audio?OpenPage

 

and then last week it was in the Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs  - april 16th I believe.

 

eta: when you get to the link go to the left menu and open up Senate Chamber for the first one and then for the second go to Senate Committees and open the State, Veterans link.

Usually, as a PR strategy, nonprofit advocacy groups will try to put a positive spin on even a setback. NVIC did this when California's Bad Mommy Law passed, ("Hooray! There's a religious exemption. Good work, vax choice advocates!"). Sundari Kraft's spin is that it may be amended, but it's still an important bill to support. You can read it on the Vaccinate for Healthy Schools website (click on Update).

Would someone mind linking us to the audio testimonies to the recent Senate hearing? I hear that some of them were phenomenal, and it might answer Kathy's question about what inspired the changes to this bill.

I do know that there was an incredible groundswell of opposition to this bill. By contrast, Oregon has a lot of vax choice advocates, but they weren't organized enough and only 2-3 of them were showing up at hearings, so they lost this battle. Participation matters!

 What Sundari Kraft didn't mention, and one which must have irked, was the amendment by one of the senators (sorry don't know which one) about the risks of vaccines that was accepted.

Platon20, you are obviously not up to speed on this legislation. It was gutted, no need to get a doctor to sign off or to have to sit through an online state re-education program. There has never been a need to fake an exemption in CO, you just sign the back of the form. Thankfully this remains unchanged.
