Vote Approved to Override HPV Vaccination Order

There was heated debate at the state capitol Tuesday, after the Texas House tentatively voted to override the governor's order mandating the HPV vaccine for girls before entering the 6th grade.

The vaccine protects against the Human Papilloma Virus, a leading cause of cervical cancer.

The bill still needs final approval in both the House and Senate, but even if that happens, Governor Rick Perry can still veto it.
