Senate Bill 611, now in the Oregon House of Representatives would alloy schools to maintain a supply of "Epi Pens"  (epinephrine auto-injectors) for children who have an allergic reaction to food - insects or other substances.

 

State Representative John Huffman of the Dalles says he's heard testimony over the years of children show suffer or become dangerously ill  - and having emergency help makes sense.

 

"I think it's just a necessary, but a smart move. I do have struggles with the liability for the teacher and the school district; but I think parents are maybe going to have to be willing to sign waivers to allow this to happen so their children can have immediate access to the necessary medications."

 

Huffman says so far, the bill has been approved by the Senate and now it's in the House Education Committee for review - but there's been no opposition to the bill.

 

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America is asking Oregon legislators to pass the bill - saying the "Epi Pen" is a quick and inexpensive remedy in case of an allergic emergency.
