Colorado Senate hears vaccine bill testimony

A proposal to require parents to take an online course highlighting the benefits and risks of vaccinating their kids if they choose to opt out for personal reasons has made its way to the Colorado State Senate, where a committee heard testimony from both sides Wednesday night. Though the bill passed in the House after a bipartisan 42-19 vote, opponents have accused its sponsor of treating parents like "idiots" and "morons." Voting is set to happen next week. Story | More
