HD 26 and HR 144 are both resolutions sponsored by Representative Michael J. Zalewski.  Resolutions do not enact or change laws.  However, these resolutions are asking the Illinois Department of Public Health to promulgate administrative rules pursuant to the requirement for health examinations and immunizations within the School Code and to expedite this process in order to have such rules in place for the 2015-16 school year.  

These resolutions are very one-sided concerning measles and measles vaccine safety and efficacy.
