A bill pre-filed by State Representative Suzie Pollock, who represents part of the Lake community, will impact vaccine requirements for school children.
Pollock says the legislation removes requirements that force parents to have their child vaccinated, in order to attend school.
The provisions would be in place of all school-age children at all Lake area schools and colleges.
Another bill pre-filed by Pollock also aims to help identify any child deaths related to the vaccine, by requiring the county medical examiner, physician or coroner to refer all cases related to the vaccine within 36 hours.
The bill also requires they indicate their vaccinations at the time of death.
