Lisa Lyons (R) on June 12, 2014, to expand to restaurants, recreation camps, youth sports leagues, amusement parks, sports arenas and other “authorized facilities” at which allergens capable of causing anaphylaxis may be present, a law that allows physicians to prescribe epinephrine auto injectors to schools to keep in their facilities.
