Democratic Congresswoman Lois Capps of Santa Barbara introduced legislation which calls for providing resources to schools to teach CPT, and AED.  Capps says more than 350,000 people die annually from sudden cardiac arrest, but studies show victims have a 34% better chance of survival if they are immediately treated.
