Nevada Becomes Latest State to Require CPR-AED Education Before High School Graduation

CARSON CITY, NV -- Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval today signed Assembly Bill 85, which passed with bipartisan, bicameral, unanimous support.

Assembly Bill 85, sponsored by Assemblyman Mike Sprinkle, eliminates a provision currently in state law that limits high school instruction in CPR and defibrillator usage and mandates that both CPR and AED instruction be offered in all private, charter and public schools. AB 85 will ensure that more high school students are provided the opportunity to learn potentially life-saving techniques. This measure was supported by the American Heart Association, schools districts, fire and rescue representatives and citizens.

“I was proud to join Assembly Leadership today and sign (this) bipartisan, thoughtful bill into law. (It) will improve the lives of our fellow Nevadans.” said Sandoval.

The new law becomes effective July 1, 2017.
