Hands-Only CPR In Schools Bill Moves Out Of Senate Rules Committee [UPDATE]

A bill that would teach hands-only CPR and the basics of how to use an AED in schools is now out of the rules committee in the State Senate.

American Heart Association volunteers are optimistic that the Senate will pass the bill today.

17 other states have already passed similar bills, and proponents say students can be taught in as little as one class period at little cost to schools.

Having CPR performed doubles or triples the chances of survival of cardiac arrest.

UPDATE 4:40 p.m.- In a unanimous vote, the state Senate has passed the CPR in Schools bill.

The American Heart Association is applauding the Senate passage.

The CPR in Schools bill is in the Assembly Rules Committee.

From there it goes to a vote in the full Assembly.
