 House passes bill to get epinephrine at schools story image
WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Congress is working on legislation that could save a child's life from a potentially deadly allergic reaction while at school.

The House has passed a bill that encourages states to come up with policies to make epinephrine available in schools.

The drug is used to treat severe and potentially deadly reactions to things like peanuts or bee allergies.

It would also give incentives to schools to permit trained administrators to inject the medication.

And, it would require states to review their liability laws to make sure those administrators have adequate legal protections when they come to the aid of students.

The bill now goes to the Senate.
