Hello Everybody:

The Anaphylaxis Allergy Action bill HB2442 flew through the Full Education committee today. It is on Calendar & Rules tomorrow. When it gets out of there, I believe it will be ready to go to the House Floor! I am so excited! I just wanted you all to know how much Brentson and I appreciate your thoughts, prayers and your support through this ordeal.

Please see a copy of the bill.

"Bill Summary for *HB2442 / SB2883

This bill would require the department of education to develop guidelines for the management of students with life-threatening food allergies no later than January 1, 2007. These guidelines would include, but not be limited to:

(1) Education and training of school personnel on proper medication procedures and care for students with such allergies;
(2) Procedures for responding to allergic reactions;
(3) Development of individualized health care and action plans for every student with such an allergy; and
(4) Protocols to prevent allergen exposure.

Based on these guidelines, this bill would require each LEA to implement, by July 1, 2007, a management plan for students suffering from such allergies."

Take Care,
Laura & Brentson Duke
