Dear Advocate,

The New Jersey Senate is currently considering a bill (S801) that would require schools in the state to keep a supply of undesignated epinephrine auto-injectors for use in emergencies. If a student experiences a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis), schools would be able to treat the potentially life-threatening reaction with the necessary medication. 

The New Jersey Assembly has already passed the Assembly version of this bill, so if the Senate approves S801 the bill would go to Governor Christie for a signature! 

Please click here to learn more about S801 and to send a letter to Senator Sweeney (the Senate President) urging him to bring the bill to a vote before the full Senate. We are one step closer to making schools in New Jersey safer for children with allergies!
