California schools will be required to keep a supply of "Epi-Pens" -- antihistamine auto-injectors used for potentially lethal allergic reactions -- on premises.  Previous law encouraged, but did not require, schools to have Epi-Pens.  Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler has details about the new law and its mandates.
