Asthma bill aimed at decreasing absenteeism
GLENDALE -- Assemblyman Dario Frommer (D-Glendale) is planning to
introduce a bill that would address child asthma rates among children
in the state.
Frommer is chairman of the Assembly's Health Committee.
The legislation would institute better treatment protocol for
dealing with childhood asthma, he said.
Health maintenance organizations would be required to provide
families with a list of medications for asthma. Plus, a standard for
children's asthma treatment would be established for public and
private health care systems under any new law.
Increasing asthma rates among children are a reason for school
absenteeism, Frommer said.
