Implementation of SB 66, SB 579 & SB 1367

The Texas Legislature passed SB66 in the 2015 Legislative Session and SB579 and SB1367 during the 2017 Legislative Session.  These bills allow for stocking epinephrine auto-injectors in Texas public schools and publicly funded charter schools, private schools and public colleges and universities to be used in case of emergency.  Legal liability protection is provided to those involved.  The TAAIS Task Force has compiled this information to be distributed to any school district, individual school whether public or private, college or university that plans to implement epinephrine auto-injectors for emergency use in their district or school.
