Governor Quinn Statement on Illinois Senate Passage of AED Training Legislation

SPRINGFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn today released the following statement regarding Illinois Senate passage of a bill that will require automated external defibrillator (AED) training for students in all Illinois high schools. The measure, House Bill 3724, has already passed the Illinois House and now heads to the Governor’s desk.

“Illinois’ students should be prepared to act if a health emergency happens in any of our high schools.
