Hughes files Senate companion to Sam's Law; Clardy says date for House panel testimony
East Texas state Sen. Bryan Hughes has filed a companion bill to state Rep. Travis Clardy’s measure in the Texas House of Representatives to equip public school personnel to recognize the signs of epileptic seizure and provide aid to the estimated 49,000 public schoolchildren diagnosed with epilepsy.
State Representative Travis Clardy filed House Bill 684 (HB 684), Sam's Law. Named after Samantha Watkins, a Kilgore ISD student who passed away after experiencing a seizure in December 2016, Sam's Law will ensure school district employees receive training and education about seizure recognition and first aid.
