NO VOTE ON NEW JERSEY RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION BILL! THE NATIONAL Vaccine Concerned get the big W!!!!

NO VOTE ON NEW JERSEY RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION BILL! THE NATIONAL Vaccine Concerned get the big W!!!!

The New Jersey Legislature did not have the votes to pass the bill to remove the religious exemption, so the sponsors did not bring the bill up for a vote late Monday, January 13, 2020. It is officially dead for this legislative session. Congrats to the many thousands of people who showed up in Trenton, and the many more thousands of people who participated remotely via Facebook. This effort should become the model for political activism in the fight against…

The Final Stretch in New Jersey’s Race to Eliminate Religious Exemptions to Childhood Vaccination

The Final Stretch in New Jersey’s Race to Eliminate Religious Exemptions to Childhood Vaccination

Like many, I have been following the battle by the vaccine concerned against New Jersey Legislature’s attempt to remove the religious exemption to childhood vaccination. Last year, New York removed religious exemptions by strong-arming one legislator to change his previously cast vote in opposition. In New Jersey, it’s coming down to a last-ditch compromise to carve out or preserve religious exemptions for families who can afford to send their children to private schools where the schools will allow/honor religious exemptions….

Stoller Civil Suit Update

Stoller Civil Suit Update

Today, the court granted the Medical Board’s Demurrer and dismissed the complaint against it. It was not entirely unexpected, per my previous update. https://wp.me/p7pwQD-Bs The basis of the decision is that since the Board now has an administrative action against Dr. Stoller, the issues raised in the civil suit should be initially addressed in the administrative proceeding. The decision is consistent with basically all prior attempts to pursue a civil lawsuit against an administrative agency during the pendancy of an…

Into the roots of the weeds of quarantine and isolation in Los Angeles

Into the roots of the weeds of quarantine and isolation in Los Angeles

My prior post suggesting that people should calm down about AB 262 because the law does not directly affect the public might have been too subtle or maybe just too abstract. I indicated that what the state and county can do to people during public health crises is determined by other state and country laws and regulations, not AB 262. But again, that might have been too abstract. So let’s get into the roots of the weeds, so you can…

Everyone should calm down about Cali. AB 262

Everyone should calm down about Cali. AB 262

On October 19, the Governor signed AB 262 which deals with the responsibility of local health officials during a public health crisis due to a communicable disease. Here is the text of the new law: https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201920200AB262 Many parents have expressed concern if not downright fear that their pets will be removed, or that quarantines will be imposed. I do not think the bill will significantly change things. However, the concern is understandable in light of the on-going negative PR campaign…

“How Long Will My Child’s Current Vaccine Medical Exemption Be Good for?”

“How Long Will My Child’s Current Vaccine Medical Exemption Be Good for?”

I get asked that alot these days. But, as I have said repeatedly in these posts, I can’t answer each family’s specific question about this, not even the families who have exemptions written by Ken Stoller (who I represent). So again, I won’t be answering any of your calls or messages about your child’s specific circumstances. Aside from my inability to deal with the shear volume of families who have questions, the reason I can’t answer specific questions or offer…

When Do New California Laws “take effect”?

When Do New California Laws “take effect”?

Technically, regular California legislation takes effect on January 1, on the year following passage. Here is the Secretary of State language and URL about it. “A statute enacted during a regular session of the Legislature takes effect on January 1 of the following year, unless a later date is specified in the statute.” https://www.sos.ca.gov/administration/bill-chapters/ Therefore, SB 276/714 does not “take effect” until January 1, 2020 (and I’ve revised a prior post which suggested or stated otherwise). However, I don’t think…
