Senator Champion

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.

I would like to see an investigative report on whether or not doctors in Missouri are complying with this law.

Call offices and ask if they have flu shots for 2 year olds. I would bet that they are not mercury free. Do the same for pregnant women.

Are doctors really following this law?
