ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A legislative proposal in New York would require new teachers to complete training on how to use an EpiPen if a student suffers a severe allergic attack.

The bill, pending in the Democrat-led state Legislature, is intended to use free, quick training sessions to ensure teachers can administer auto injectors in the event of an emergency. It's one of three allergy-related proposals this year.

A second would require restaurants to post more information about items with potential allergens, while a third would require restaurants to train staff on ways to prevent allergens from accidentally getting into the wrong dish.

The legislative sponsors of the bill are planning to detail their proposals at a press conference Wednesday in Albany.
