The House passed the bill 45 to 15.  

 

State law requires students in public shcools to be immunzied against diseases like polio and measles.

 

 Yet nearly 6 percent of Oregon kids opt out of these vacciantions.

 

State Representative Jason Conger of Bend voted against the bill.

 

"To me it's a strange intrusion into parentl lrights without justification.  It seems to me there's a misunderstanding with policy makers.  The necessity driving it -- doesn't exist."
