Connecticut and Texas have passed epinephrine stocking laws for public places. These laws allow places to store and use undesignated epinephrine in case of an allergy emergency.
If a person has a severe allergic reaction, called anaphylaxis, public places can now be better prepared to treat the reaction. Making epinephrine, a necessary and life-saving medicine, publicly available is an important step to help people with serious allergies.
We send a huge thank you and congratulations to all the advocates and legislators in these states who supported these laws! Because of your efforts, many public places will now be safer for people with allergies.
Here are bill summaries and Senate versions of the bills:
