MICHIGAN — A new bill could require high–schoolers to learn a life–saving technique.
The American Heart Association launched a bill that was recently introduced to the State House and Senate that would require high school students to learn CPR.
According to the organization, nearly 357,000 people have cardiac arrest outside of the hospital every year. Twenty–seven states have already passed similar laws.
Several medical and law enforcement organizations and agencies in the state currently support House Bill 5160 and Senate Bill 647.
