NY school bus drivers can respond to allergy attacks

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A new law in New York state allows school bus drivers to administer EpiPens and similar devices in an emergency.

The state Senate says the law taking effect Tuesday will help protect the lives of children with severe food or other allergies.

The measure was approved by the state Legislature earlier this year. It includes bus drivers among the types of school district workers allowed to administer epinephrine auto-injectors.
