State Rep. Mitch Greenlick, D-Portland, confirmed that he’s ordered up a bill to eliminate a provision of Oregon law that allows parents to forego vaccinations for their kids because of religious or philosophical reasons. 

Gov. Kate Brown suggested earlier Thursday that she’s open to legislation like Greenlick is preparing.  “I think we’re probably going to tighten the law around Oregon’s immunization strategy,” Brown said.
