Obama’s full statement during a brief signing statement:

“I just want to thank all of the outstanding legislators who are here, and advocates. This is something that will save children’s lives.

“Some people may know that Malia actually has a peanut allergy. She doesn’t have asthma, but obviously making sure that EpiPens are available in case of emergency in schools is something that every parent can understand.

“And, thanks to the bipartisan work of the folks behind us and the advocacy communities that have been pushing this so hard, we’re going to be giving states a lot more incentives to make sure that that happens. So I want to congratulate all of you.”

That's pretty amazing. I wonder if he meant to reveal that.

Definitely helps to get high profile people sharing that they or their children has a food allergy.

I wonder if they know about the AuviQ since he specifically said "EpiPen". But maybe she doesn't have to carry it since there is always someone from Secret Service nearby 8)
