Kentucky House OKs bill to require CPR training in schools

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky lawmakers have completed work on a bill aimed at requiring that public school students receive basic CPR training.

The measure was passed by the House without debate on Monday, two months after passing the Senate. The bill now moves on to Gov. Matt Bevin's desk.

Republican Sen. Max Wise, the bill's lead sponsor, has said basic CPR skills learned in school could help save lives.

The training could be given as part of health or physical education courses or during a Junior ROTC course.

The legislation is Senate Bill 33.
