It’s always an uphill battle trying to get legislation passed into law. Florida has already had 2 failed attempts trying to make CPR training mandatory for Florida high school students back in 2013 and 2015.
Fast Forward to 2018…things are starting to look up!
Here is the latest:
On January 30, 2018, the bill was passed to the Appropriations Subcommittee on Pre-K-12 Education-SJ226.
February 5, it was reviewed and then the Subcommittee Recommendation: found Favorable on February 8, 2018.
What happens next?
Although progressing nicely, there are still a few more steps this bill must go through in order to be passed into law. Here is the Legislative Process: and How Senate Becomes Law.
If everything works out in the end, this bill could possibly be effective 7/1/2018.
