Arizona Students are closer than ever to learning Hands Only CPR in Schools. Senate Bill 1137, sponsored by Senator Jeff Dial and championed by Representative Doug Coleman, is on the way to the House of Representatives for a final vote and then on to the Governor’s desk for signature.
Throughout the campaign, AHA volunteer Roxanne Coleman has been a fabulous supporter, including doing a PSA highlighting her own experience (password: aha) with Sudden Cardiac Arrest and CPR as a reason to support this bill. Our hardworking advocates and staff recruited and worked with the public to encourage them to speak at committee hearings and contact legislators to encourage support of this amazing bill. In addition, Arizona staff and volunteers have also faithfully been sending out media alerts helping to accomplish this lofty but important goal.
Thank you and congratulations to everyone involved!
