I am glad we got Senator Champion on board with our series. While the 6 hour trip was long, it's beneficial we have her for our stories. She pushed Missouri's mercury bill into law. Missouri is one of the few states that has a mercury law. We wanted a political perspective for the series.
Ryan was our photog for the shoot. Meredith and Jessica came along for our blog and web content. Meredith setup the interview.
One of the most compelling comments Champion gave us is the reason behind the law. She says there is enough reason to be concerned about the safety of mercury in vaccines. While the law does have an emergency clause, Champion says this is a way to move forward.
