Connecticut House Minority Leader Rep. Vincent Candelora

This hour, we speak with the top Republican in the state house the next steps after a fight in the state House over a vaccine bill. The proposal would end the practice of allowing parents to avoid vaccination for their children by claiming religious objections. The house approved the measure, but it has yet to come up for a vote in the senate.
Also, is the governor doing the right thing, by planning to end most COVID-19 restrictions next month?
