Bill requiring high school students to learn CPR passes through committee

A bill created to ensure high school students learn CPR skills before they graduate will be put to a vote in the Oklahoma House of Representatives.

House Bill 1378, or The Dustin Rhodes and Lindsay Steed CPR Training Act, passed through the Oklahoma House Common Education Committee by a vote of 13-1. The bill is authored by Norman Representative Emily Virgin.

The American Heart Association says in cases of cardiac arrest the timely use of CPR doubles or triples survival rates.
