EpiPen legislation talks will soon begin

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – The Senate will start debating legislation to help people who have a severe allergic reaction at a public place.

The House unanimously approved a bill giving places like sports stadiums, restaurants and camps the option to stock epinephrine injectors.

Commonly known as “EpiPens”, they’re used to treat people who suffer a sudden and severe allergic reaction.

The medication will help until emergency crews arrive.

Governor Rick Snyder signed a similar bill two years ago, which put injectors into every Michigan school.
