Epinephrine in the Schools Bill: Lobby Your Senator
continued from previous page
Because the bill has bipartisan support, Durbin and Kirk are optimistic about its chances. They told Allergic Living that they will look for opportunities this Congress to move the bill, possibly as part of a larger piece of legislation, or on its own.
“I will work with Senator Kirk to pass this bill to ensure we’re taking every appropriate step to protect kids in their schools,” said Durbin.
U.S. citizens can help make this bill become law – and potentially save a child’s life – by writing to their Senator.
