ALBANY, N.Y. -- Advocates across the state are calling on lawmakers to pass a CPR bill.
The bill calls on the commissioner of education to make recommendations to the board of regents on the adoption of instruction in CPR and the use of AEDs in high schools.
On Tuesday, 100 American Heart Association advocates came together at the well in the Legislative Office Building in Albany to demonstrate why the bill is needed.
Survivors, rescuers, and families who lost loved ones from sudden cardiac arrest were there to ask legislatures to approve the bill.
The Assembly Education Committee is scheduled to vote on the bill Tuesday.
