Anti-vaccine protesters disrupt California Assembly with loud chants
Anti-vaccine activists disrupted the California Assembly’s Appropriations Committee Friday in another late attempt to derail a proposed law that would restrict children’s medical exemptions for vaccines that are mandatory in schools.
The proposal, Senate Bill 276, cleared the committee, setting up a vote on the Assembly floor before moving to Gov. Gavin Newsom.
Several vaccine activists began standing on chairs in the committee room Friday morning, chanting, “You have not represented California for all.”
Committee Chairwoman Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, temporarily adjourned the meeting while California Highway Patrol officers spoke with the activists.
