The 85th Texas Legislature has wrapped up, and we are happy to see two bills that Dr. Lieberman personally went to the Capitol to advocate for have passed!

SB579: This bill is similar to SB66 which passed two years ago for public schools. It allows private schools to stock epinephrine auto-injectors for use in case of anaphylatic emergency.
It was signed by into law, effective immediately, by Gov. Greg Abbott on 5/22/2017.

SB1367: Relating to policies and training regarding the use of epinephrine auto-injectors by public institutions of higher education, was signed into law by the Governor on 5/27/2017 and will be effective 9/1/2017.

Unfortunately, SB1101, relating to stocking and using epinephrine auto-injectors in daycare centers, and SB1683 relating to food allergy awareness posters in restaurants did not pass this session.
