I move that Engrossed Senate Bill 110 be amended to read as follows:
Page 3, after line 31 , begin a new paragraph and insert:
SECTION 4. [EFFECTIVE UPON PASSAGE] (a) Before July 1, 2002, the division of family and children shall adopt rules under IC 4-22-2 to require each child who is less than eighteen (18) years of age and who resides in a family that receives monthly cash assistance payments through the federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families program to receive the immunizations recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics unless the parent or other adult caretaker relative:
(1) refuses to have the child immunized because of religious beliefs; or
(2) provides documented medical evidence from a licensed physician that the immunization is not available or appropriate for the child.
(b) This SECTION expires July 1, 2002.
SOURCE: ; (01)HB2099.1.2. --> SECTION 5. An emergency is declared for this act.
Renumber all SECTIONS consecutively.
