Texas Lege Scraps Wanna-Be King Perry's HPV Order- With More than Enough to overcome a Veto

13 March 2007 at 4:16:24 PM

Here's my question. Will Perry have to give back, now, all the money that Merck paid him? Or maybe he can find some other drug to push on the public.

The state House overwhelmingly passed a bill rescinding Gov. Rick Perry’s order mandating that Texas girls be given a vaccine against a virus that causes cervical cancer.

A bill put forth by Rep. Dennis Bonnen, R-Angleton, passed 119-21 this afternoon, well beyond the two-thirds minimum needed to overturn a veto from the governor.

The bill included language that the state health commissioner cannot later require girls to receive the controversial vaccine without approval from the state Legislature. Opponents of the bill noted that the state Legislature is not likely to get a chance to even address the issue again for two years, the next time it is in session.

It at times appeared like a bizarro world version of the state House where up was down and a group of Democrats were virtually the only supporters of a policy from the state’s Republican governor.

I'm a Democrat. I don't support what Perry did. And I also think this whole deal, with some Dems supporting Perry trying to make law was truly, as the author said, Bizarro World.
