Access to opioid antagonists for schools approved by Senate
A bill allowing schools access to opioid antagonists crossed the Capitol hall.
On a 33-0 vote, Senators passed Senate Bill 84, which permits a school district to possess and, if needed, administer opioid antagonists.
SB 84 permits a school board to acquire opioid antagonists, as it would be directed in state law and administrative rule, make the medicine available to trained school personnel in the event it’s needed and grants immunity from civil liability to the districts and personnel whether or not they choose to participate in the program.
ASBSD is monitoring the bill, which heads to the House Health and Human Services committee for review
