A Note from Rep. Edming

Last week, the Senate and Assembly passed my first bill, which allows epinephrine auto-injectors to be stored in public places for treatment during an allergic reaction. There was strong bipartisan support for this legislation in both the Senate and Assembly.

Allergies are on the rise in our country and I was concerned with the health and safety of Wisconsinites, which led me to introduce this legislation. The summer months are here, which brings bee season and the potential for beestings and many other possible allergies. Often times, an allergic reaction occurs in the absence of a known allergic trigger. I believe that greater access to epinephrine auto-injectors will help improve safety during a life-threatening allergic reaction.

The bill must now be signed into law the Governor Walker.
