Let's Make Louisiana CPR Smart!

by Krystle N. on Monday, April 7, 2014

House Bill 542, CPR in Schools, has successfully passed its first step in the legislative process.  The Louisiana House Committee on Education unanimously voted in favor of the bill on Thursday, April 3.  Committee members strongly voiced their support of CPR in schools.  State Rep. Cameron Henry, R-Metairie, asked that the American Heart Association host a CPR training day at the Capitol so legislators may receive hands on CPR training.  In the end, all committee members became coauthors of House Bill 542.

Remember, this is only the first step in the process; we still have three CPR votes left.  Stay tuned for more You're the Cure alerts on how you can help Louisiana be CPR smart.
