Last month, the Ohio House of Representatives passed House Bill 85, also known as Erin’s Law. The crux of this legislation is aimed at preventing and protecting youth from the potential of sexual abuse, an unfortunate and abominable topic, but one that I am passionate about addressing as the primary sponsor of HB 85.
The Ohio House of Representatives yesterday concurred on Senate amendments to House Bill 200, sponsored by State Representative Christina Hagan (R-Alliance). The bill expands the list of facilities that are able to obtain non-patient specific epinephrine for the purpose of treating anaphylactic shock. Such places included in the legislation are restaurants, colleges and universities, amusement parks, sports facilities, child care settings and other locations.
