My family and I were so honored to be invited by Governor Synder to witness the signing of these two House Bills. I am so proud to say that I live in Michigan. This is such a monumental event for so many families. Many states across the country have Epinephrine laws in place, but there are very few that actually require them. Other states are passing laws allowing schools to obtain epinephrine auto injectors and stock them, but this is an option and not a requirement. Michigan did the right thing by becoming the fifth state to require Epinephrine in our schools. This will bring so much awareness to our schools and save so many lives.
There are so many people and families out there that made this happen. I want to thank all of you for all of your efforts. Thank you for continuing to raise awareness, advocating for our children and calling and writing your state representatives and senators. You all made a huge difference in so many lives.
