On Monday, the Senate passed S. Con. Res. 93 by unanimous consent, supporting the goals and ideals of "National Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month." 

The House followed suit by passing H. Con. Res. 393 by a voice vote on Thursday.

Both Representatives Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and Michael Burgess (R-TX) spoke in favor of the resolution. The  legislation is designed to focus the nation on a leading cause of death in the U.S.: sudden cardiac arrest.

The SCA Foundation is a member of the SCA Coalition, which has advocated for this legislation. The Foundation plans an awards dinner on October 29th to highlight National SCA Awareness Month.
