Bill to Require Epi Pens in Schools Moves Forward

 
Posted Wednesday, April 30th 2014 @ 7am  by KFBK News

A bill requiring public schools to stock epinephrine auto injectors is moving forward in the state Senate.

Minority leader Bob Huff authored the measure which he says will help save lives.

"California law imposes a duty upon school districts to carefully supervise the safety of their students while on school premises, and districts may be held liable for injuries caused by the failure to exercise such care," he said. 

Huff says the bill ensures that critically important medicine can be administered quickly and safely if a student suffers from a serious allergic reaction during school hours.
