There is good news for Michigan schools, that takes effect in 2017.

According to the Associated Press, Michigan schools will have to provide CPR instruction under legislation signed by Lt. Gov. Brian Calley.

The law enacted Wednesday takes effect in the next academic year. The measure requires that schools provide instruction in CPR and the use of defibrillators at least one time between grades 7 and 12.

Health advocates say the law is a simple way to have more CPR-trained lifesavers in Michigan.
