Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno of Lemont also filed legislation to further the discussion on who is required to receive vaccinations.
“Sen. Radogno’s goals are similar to Mulroe’s,” said Radogno spokeswoman Patty Schuh according to an article in the Daily Herald. “We need to tighten the rules and laws that govern the vaccination process.”
