Fiscal Note Summary


Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.


    NOTE: This bill modifies the current required instruction in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and first aid in any of the grades six through twelve in public school health education subjects. It adds care for conscious choking in the first aid instruction and, after July 1, 2016, requires a minimum thirty minutes instruction
    prior to graduation in CPR and the psychomotor skills necessary to perform it. The CPR instruction must be based on a program established by American Heart Association or The American Red Cross or other recognized guidelines. Various community organizations/members, in addition to teachers, may give the
    instruction and the community organization are encouraged to provide the necessary training and instructional resources. School districts may exceed minimum requirements, but instruction that results in certification being earned requires an authorized CPR/AED instructor.
