Bill to Mandate the Cervical Cancer Vaccine Losing Support

State legislation that would require all 6th grade girls to get the new cervical cancer vaccine is losing support.

Two democratic senators announced bipartisan support for the bill in January. Since then, opposition from medical groups and conservatives surfaced.

Assembly health committee chairwoman, Republican Leah Vukmir, says the bill won't be going anywhere in her committee.

Senators Lena Taylor and Robert Wirch say they still plan to introduce the bill, but it will have an option for parents who object to the vaccination.
