Bill requires school officials trained in CPR

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A bill requiring schools to train at employees in cardiopulmonary resuscitation has passed the state Senate.

The bill is called the ``Dustin Rhodes CPR Training Act'' and requires at least two employees at every school to get CPR training each year. It's named for Dustin Rhodes, who died after choking on a piece of bread in a school cafeteria.

Senator Mary Easley of Tulsa is sponsoring the bill and says the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association are being asked to help provide teaching materials and training courses.
