Governor Gavin Newsom has signed a controversial bill requiring oversight of the medical exemption process for vaccinations. Senator Dr. Richard Pan says SB 276 is aimed at preventing fake medical exemptions:
California Governor Gavin Newsom has signed into law a controversial vaccine bill that restricts vaccination exemptions in schools. The bill, along with the amendments Newsom had agreed upon, passed the Senate yesterday afternoon. The governor later signed the bill and its changes into law last night. Protesters blocked entrances, resisted police and called on lawmakers in the state capitol to stop the bill from passing. Some even chained themselves to the entrances of the capitol. Six people were arrested on misdemeanor charges of resisting and delaying a peace officers and intentionally obstructing business on public property.
