CPR curriculum signed into law

Gov. Tom Wolf (D) signed Senate Bill 115 into law Wednesday, establishing a mandate for Pennsylvania schools to establish “hands-only” CPR training.
 
Introduced by Sen. Thomas Killion (R-Delaware) in January, the bill passed the Senate twice, once with House amendments. The bill calls for curriculum for high schoolers to learn the CPR method, which includes using chest compressions and automated external defibrillators.
