WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy announced the passage of the Protecting Patients Access to Emergency Medications Act in the U.S. Senate.
Cassidy co-authored the bipartisan legislation with U.S. Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO).

"During a medical emergency, the ability to quickly provide life-saving drugs can make all the difference," Cassidy said. "This legislation will ensure our first responders have access to these drugs and can save more lives."
