A bill that would require all high school students to learn CPR has passed both the House and Senate in Minnesota, reports My Fox 9.
Norm Okerstrom, a father who nearly lost his son three years ago, is an advocate and supporter of the bill. He said if it weren't for the person with CPR skills, his son wouldn't be alive.
Both the House and Senate in Minnesota passed the bills and Gov. Dayton is expected to sign it. There have only been a few language barriers in the bill that have caused some hesitation for lawmakers.
The American Heart Association said there are a variety of ways in which schools can help teach CPR for a free or reduced cost, according to Twelve TV News.
Last week, supporters marched through the Capitol to urge Gov. Dayton to sign the bill.
