“I cannot understand why this bill has been filed for seven or eight sessions right now and has not made it to the governor’s desk,” said Rep. Jay Kaufman (D-Lexington), who spoke in support of a bill (H 594) that would allow students “with life-threatening allergies” to carry and self-administer epinephrine pens in schools.
