3 Republicans Sneak In Vaccination Without Parental Consent Amendment
The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –
On March 22nd in the House Health Subcommittee and on March 23rd in the Senate Health Committee, two “caption bills” were snuck in under the radar with amendments added that push the HPV Vaccine. One of the bills allows minors to receive the HPV vaccine without parental knowledge or consent.
A caption bill is filed as a placeholder with generic language that is filled out with amendments in committees and subcommittees. Generally, these amendments are not displayed on the General Assembly website until a bill is well on its way in the legislative process.
