Bill Expands Good Samaritan Laws

The Pennsyvlania House, June 2,  passed, 196-0,  House Bill 2049, that would apply Good Samaritan civil immunity to school bus drivers who administer epinephrine autoinjectors, also known as epi-pens, to students.

Although  law now allows school bus drivers to administer epi-pens , there is a general reluctance to do so as school bus drivers  assume the legal ramifications if things go awry, said State Rep. Jim Cox (R-129).

This legislation would grant civil immunity for those operating in good faith, adhering to district policy and who are appropriately trained, said Cox..

The bill is now before the Senate.
