The Wisconsin Assembly voted to pass a bill known as Dillon's Law Tuesday that would allow anyone trained in using an EpiPen to use it anywhere.

The law is named after Dillon Mueller, a Mishicot teenager who died in 2014 from a bee sting because an EpiPen wasn't accessible.

This bill adds to a previous law that allowed for businesses to train employees to use EpiPens and administer them to strangers within their business or building.
