New Mexico has a law in place for stocking and using albuterol to treat respiratory distress and stocking and using epinephrine to treat anaphylactic reactions in schools:

Congratulations!  Your state has passed a stock-epinephrine law that permits an emergency supply of epinephrine auto-injectors and emergency supply of albuterol to be used in a school. However, our job is not done yet. Each law or regulation must be implemented or put into action by a board or an agency.

The agency or board will then issue administrative rules, guidelines or best practices explaining in detail how it intends to put the law into effect and what a mother, father, caregiver, physician, pharmacist or school nurse must do to comply with the law. AANMA is an active resource in these states assisting administrators in a seamless rollout of the stock-epinephrine laws.
