TELL YOUR STORY. The public may also lodge complaints about Public Act 099-0249 that went into effect October 16, 2015. Agencies are required to allow the public to suggest rule revisions. Additionally, JCAR may open an investigation into an existing rule on its own volition or based on public complaint.
Points to consider:
Rules are designed to reflect the law, not to change or to supersede it.
These Rules are expanding the current vaccine schedule, requiring more mandates outside of the current law
The law CLEARLY states the Certificate of Religious Exemption is required for only K, 6th and 9th grades. These Rules are proposing to add preschool, special education, higher education, and all years transferring.
By limiting exemptions for natural immunity, these Rules are encouraging over vaccination.
Allowing schools to approve or deny religious exemptions is a violation of the 14th amendment.
Fiscal implications have not been considered, since these Rules extend beyond the statute.
Public Act 099-0249 should be retracted and the religious exemption to vaccines return to its original form. From the beginning it has caused nothing but confusion between all parties involved.
