School CPR Bill Dies in Wyoming Senate
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A bill that would have required Wyoming students to receive basic instruction in CPR has died in the state Senate.
Senate File 82 initially passed the Senate but was reconsidered and defeated on a 16-13 vote last week.
The proposal would have required all high school graduates to receive basic instruction in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the Heimlich maneuver and in the use of automated external defibrillators.
The bill did not require CPR certification, which involves much more detailed training.
