Whistleblowers call for removal of VA watchdog

Committee advances emergency allergy treatment bill

A Wisconsin Assembly committee has advanced a bill that would allow businesses to keep a supply of epinephrine injectors to be used in case of life-threatening allergic reactions.

The Health Committee unanimously approved the bill this morning. The committee changed the bill to make clear that businesses may offer the drug, but aren’t required to have it on hand.

Schools are already allowed to keep a supply of the auto-injectors. The bill would add camps, colleges, restaurants and other businesses to those allowed to carry and administer the drug. Auto-injectors are used to treat anaphylaxis, a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction that causes constricted airways that make it difficult to breathe.

Vos: Voucher Expansion can’t be Done as Proposed

Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says expanding the private school voucher program probably can’t be done as Gov. Scott Walker has proposed.

Walker proposed lifting the 1,000-student enrollment cap in the statewide voucher program, with funding for the expansion coming from public school districts that lose students. However, his approach has run into opposition from voucher advocates who worry it will lead to lower vouchers for participating students.

Vos says Republicans want to ensure that those already receiving vouchers don’t see a reduction. He says they have not yet talked about expansion.
