Businesses Could Keep EpiPens On Hand Under Bill

People having an allergic reaction would have quicker access to a potentially life-saving shot of epinephrine under a bill that has passed a House committee.

The measure would allow businesses to keep epinephrine injectors, or EpiPens, on hand.

Theresa Anderson’s son Ben is allergic to peanuts, eggs and dairy products.

She says he carries an EpiPen everywhere he goes but some people may not and others may not know they’re allergic to something until they have a reaction.

The bill now awaits a vote in the full House.
