Utica, NY (WIBX) - High school students may soon be learning ways to help save lives.

The Greater Utica Area American Heart Association is supporting a bill which would require all high school students to attain basic CPR training before they graduate.

If the bill is passed, students would learn basic CPR skills in their health classes or during Study Hall.

The bill is currently on the floor of the House and Senate.
