Michigan – Stock Epinephrine Law
Status of stock epinephrine legislation in Michigan
Public Act 186 of 2013 http://legislature.mi.gov/doc.aspx?2013-HB-4352

Congratulations! Your state has passed a stock-epinephrine law that requires every public school in Michigan to have at least two epinephrine auto-injectors starting next academic year. The law also ensures that at least two staff members are trained to use them. However, our job is not done yet. The law must be implemented or put into action by a board or an agency. The agency or board will then issue administrative rules, guidelines or best practices explaining in detail how it intends to put the law into effect and who must comply with the law.
The Network is an active resource in states assisting administrators in a seamless rollout of the stock-epinephrine laws.
