New York School’s Medication Law

In October 2014, Governor Cuomo signed into law Assembly Bill A9334B/Senate Bill S7758, which ensures students’ rights to self-carry and administer prescribed epinephrine auto-injectors in school. New York becomes the 50th and final U.S. state to do so. New York students already have the right to self-carry prescribed asthma medications including bronchodilator inhalers, as stated in New York Education Law Article 19 (Section 619).
