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.
