A bill giving schools the ability to stockpile a supply of auto-injectable epinephrine for children having an allergic reaction is in the hands of Georgia’s Governor.
Representative Barry Fleming told the Kiwanis Club of Thomson about his role in changing the law that allows individual students to possess EpiPens at school for their own use on Monday.
Fleming, who represents District 121, which includes a portion of McDuffie County, broadened the permission so that schools may have the medication on site if a student or faculty person has an allergic reaction. The new law, sent to the governor in early April, does require that school staff have training in order to administer the medication.
