Governor Signed SB 161
Gov. Jerry Brown has signed SB 161, which would allow classified school employees to volunteer to inject epileptic students with Diastat. CSEA and a coalition of major labor and healthcare organizations opposed this bill.
Although the governor signed the bill, CSEA and its partners who stood against it obtained several amendments to protect school employees. CSEA will soon be releasing guidance about the bill for classified school employees.
