SALT LAKE CITY — Two bills related to sudden cardiac arrest moved to final reading Wednesday in the Utah Senate.
HB118 would create a grant program within the Utah Department of Health to provide funds to counties, municipalities, schools and colleges to purchase automatic external defibrillators or AEDs. The bill has a $300,000 fiscal note.
The Senate also approved on second reading HB116, which requires owners of AEDs to register with local emergency dispatch centers as the units are installed or removed. The registrations would be conducted online, said Sen. Curt Bramble, R-Provo.
