Bill would require CPR Training in Kentucky schools

The Kentucky state House and Senate are sending a bill to Governor Matt Bevin’s desk that would require public school students receive basic CPR training in high school. The bill passed both chambers without debate.

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

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