Epinephrine Pen Bill

As a result of passage of HB 2729 in 2013, sponsored by Delegate Fleischauer and passed in 2013, trained school staff, supervised by school nurses, are able to administer epinephrine in cases of severe allergic reactions. Deaths of children in other states prompted similar legislation and thanks to Mylan, an international pharmaceutical company which started in Morgantown, over 20,000 EpiPens (™) were distributed to schools in West Virginia at no charge.
