Walker Signs Emergency Allergy Treatment Bill
Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that permits businesses to keep a supply of epinephrine injections to counteract life-threatening allergic reactions.
Schools already can keep a supply of auto-injectors on hand.
The bill allows camps, colleges, restaurants and other businesses to carry and administer the drug.
Auto-injectors are used to treat anaphylaxis, a potentially deadly allergic reaction that can construct airways and make it hard to breathe.
Walker signed the bill Wednesday.
