FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky House has passed a bill to allow more people to give insulin shots to students at school.

The measure would allow school staff members who aren’t licensed health care professionals to administer the injections or help students self-administer insulin treatments.

Staff members would have to receive training from health care professionals.

House members passed the bill on a 91-0 vote Monday. The measure, sponsored by Democratic Rep. Bob Damron of Nicholasville, now goes to the Senate for consideration.

The decision for school staff on whether to administer the insulin to students would be voluntary.


The legislation is House Bill 98.
