In 2015, Tim Neville sponsored legislation to make it even easier for unvaccinated children to attend Colorado public schools–even as measles were breaking out in other states.
The public hearings in 2015 over Neville’s so-called “Parents Bill of Rights” legislation turned into a circus of anti-vaccination conspiracy theories before being killed by fellow legislators. (Senate Bill 15-077)
For the second year in a row, Neville has introduced legislation that could make it even easier for unvaccinated children to attend Colorado schools, along with other harmful changes to public health and safety programs for children. Neville has reworded the legislation slightly to remove overt references to vaccination, but the legislation would have similar effects. (House Bill 16-1110)
