(This amendment provides $200,000 the first year from the general fund to support the purchase of EpiPens for public schools in Virginia. This allocation is provided to support House Bill 1107/Senate Bill 656, which requires local school boards to adopt and implement policies for the possession and administration of epinephrine and allows school employees to administer it to any student believed to be having an anaphylactic reaction. The intent of this amendment is to provide each public school and regional facilities with an approximately one hundred dollar allocation to help offset the purchase of EpiPens.)
