Orange County Breeze

The Senate Health Committee took action today to approve legislation authored by Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) that will better protect children and adults who suffer from serious and potentially life-threatening allergies. SB 669 enables California to join a growing group of states that provide training in the proper use of emergency epinephrine auto-injectors – otherwise known as EpiPens – by making these auto-injectors available by prescription to individuals who have successfully completed specified training and certification.
