Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Asthma Inhalers at Recreational Camps Act. Provides that a recreational camp shall permit a child with severe, potentially life-threatening allergies to possess and use an epinephrine auto-injector provided certain conditions are met. Provides that the recreational camp shall obtain information from the child's physician concerning the child's health and proper administration of any medication. Provides that if the conditions of the Act are met, the child may possess and use an epinephrine auto-injector at the recreational camp or at any camp sponsored activity, event, or program. Defines "physician" and "recreational camps".

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Inserts provisions substantially similar to those of HB 991, except provides that a recreation camp shall permit a child with sever, potentially life-threatening allergies to possess, self-administer, and use an epinephrine auto-injector or inhaler if certain conditions are met (instead of a recreation camp shall permit a child with severe, potentially life-threatening allergies to possess and use an epinephrine auto-injector if certain conditions are met). Provides that the child's parent or guardian shall provide the camp with certain information (instead of the camp shall obtain certain information from the child's physician). Provides that the recreational camp must inform the parents or guardians of the child, in writing, that the recreational camp and its employees and agents are to incur no liability, except for willful and wanton conduct, as a result of any injury arising from the self-administration of medication to the child.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Inserts provisions substantially similar to those of House Amendment No. 1 to HB 991, except deletes language providing that the child's parent or guardian shall provide the camp with the name and signature of the licensed prescriber and business and emergency numbers.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that a recreation camp shall permit a child with severe, potentially life-threatening allergies to possess, self-administer, and use an epinephrine auto-injector or inhaler if the child has the written approval of his or her parent or guardian (instead of his or her physician and the written approval of his or her parent or guardian). Deletes the definition of "physician". Adds an immediate effective date.
