State House Passes Bill Requiring EpiPens in Schools

By FOX 47 News. CREATED Oct 24, 2013

The State House passed a bill Wednesday making in mandatory for schools to stock EpiPens.

The legislation now goes to the Senate.

Right now, many kids with allergies bring their own epinephrine injectors to school.

The bill's supporters want to have them available for kids who don't know they have potentially deadly allergies.

Schools could get the EpiPens free from a pharmaceutical company program, or get state funding for them.
