Texas Attorney General Informally Smacks Down Perry's HPV Order as Not Law

13 March 2007 at 2:10:00 PM

EXACTLY the point I've been making and it's good to see the AG believes that, too. Perry is NOT THE KING.

Gov. Rick Perry's anti-cancer vaccine order does not carry the weight of law and state health officials are not required to follow it, two prominent lawmakers said Monday after meeting with Attorney General Greg Abbott.

Abbott's informal opinion comes a day before the Texas House is scheduled to vote on a bill that would bar state officials from requiring the human papillomavirus vaccine for school attendance.

The Texas Lege is debating this bill today.

The bill the House is set to debate on Tuesday would add a sentence to the existing law stating that the HPV vaccine is not required for school attendance. With 93 co-sponsors, the proposal is almost sure to pass. An identical bill has been filed in the Senate.

Made me laugh. BurkaBlog asks "Since When does the AG give oral opinions?"

So Greg Abbott gave Jane Nelson an informal opinion about whether Rick Perry had the authority to issue an order to Albert Hawkins to mandate that sixth grade girls be vaccinated for the HPV virus. Is that all there is to this, an informal opinion? Anybody can have an opinion. I have opinions. Hey, Mr. AG, why don't you get yourself a blog and tell us (and Judge Justice) what you think
