San Diego Union-Tribune

Most new buildings in California with an occupancy greater than 200 people would be required to stock electronic devices used to stop cardiac arrest under a new bill.

Sen. Ben Hueso, D-San Diego, planned to introduce the bill, SB 287, during a news conference today in San Diego. It would require automated electronic defibrillators be present in structures built after Jan. 1, 2016. Cities, including San Diego, have already passed similar laws for new buildings.
