Stance: WATCH
Action Required: None at this time
Status: Failed to move forward, died

Description:

UPDATE: HB 1185 failed to move forward and died. 

HB 1185 was filed on 2/5/2015 and is sponsored by Rep. Bell.  The bill would allow advanced practice registered nurses who are

licensed to practice advanced nursing in the United States to sign medical exemptions to vaccination in Texas. Currently only physicians can sign a medical exemption.  This bill needs to be watched carefully so it is not amended to further restrict exemptions.
