Assembly passes ‘Briana’s Law’


ALBANY, N.Y.—The passage of legislation establishing "Briana's Law" was announced by Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Assemblyman Felix Ortiz on Tuesday.

"Briana's Law" would require police officers in New York State to be retrained on CPR every two years.

"This legislation provides families with the knowledge that, when and if the time comes, New York State's police force will be ready and able to step up and fulfill its oath to protect and serve," said Speaker Silver.

The legislation is named after Briana Ojeda, an 11-year-old girl from Brooklyn who died after suffering an asthma attack in August 2010.
