Bill Would Require Michigan Public Schools to Carry EpiPens
FOX 47 News
Michigan public schools could soon be required to carry EpiPens.
Every public school in Michigan could very soon be required to have special injectors to treat life-threatening allergic reactions.
A bill is moving forward in the State House, which would require schools to have two EpiPens on hand and a trained employee to administer it.
Supporters of the legislation say a quarter of anaphylactic shock incidents occur among students who are unaware they even have an allergy.
The legislation is pending before the full House, after winning approval in a committee last week.
