Peyton’s Law Passes PA Senate Unanimously

HARRISBURG – Today the Senate approved legislation sponsored by Senator Mike Regan (R-31) which aims to educate every student-athlete and their parents about electrocardiogram (EKG) testing to detect underlying heart conditions that can lead to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).

“SCA is the leading killer of student-athletes in the United States and the leading cause of death on school campuses,” noted Regan. “Recognizing these staggering statistics, I introduced this legislation in honor of Peyton Walker, a young woman from Camp Hill who died of SCA at the age of 19 – six years ago this Saturday.”
