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).

A recent release said, the act would ensure emergency medical service professionals have the ability to provide life-saving drugs in the event of a medical emergency.

"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."

The bill will now go to the U.S. House of Representatives.
