Bill Caption

Relating to policies and training regarding the use of epinephrine auto-injectors by school districts and open-enrollment charter schools; providing immunity.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

This bill would establish a process by which a school district or open-enrollment charter school may maintain and utilize a supply of epinephrine auto injectors.

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill would affirm the principle of personal responsibility, therefore we support this legislation. If children are required to attend school, it is important that if a life-threatening medical situation occurred then the school would have the means to assist in that. Since parents can't personally be there to care for their child, they should be able to know that the school will be able to adequately take responsibility for the well-being of that child.
