Implementation of SB 66

The Texas Legislature passed SB 66 in the 2015 Legislative Session.  This bill allows for the stocking of epinephrine auto-injectors in Texas public schools and publicly funded charter schools to be used in case of emergency, and gives legal liability protection to those involved.  The TAAIS Task Force on SB66 has sent out the following information for the implementation of SB 66 to all 20 Texas Education Region Coordinators.  They, in turn, are distributing the information to each of their school districts if the Region feels that it is appropriate.
