A doctors' group says school kids with severe allergies should be allowed to bring lifesaving medicine to school.
The American Medical Association has voted to lobby for changes in the law.
The AMA says right now many school districts have policies prohibiting children from bringing medicine to school and 18 states have similar bans.
The measure, adopted by delegates in Chicago, says when it comes to serious food allergies, denial of medicine at school can be a matter of life and death.
The new policy also urges schools to develop preparedness plans for dealing with severe allergic reactions and make sure that all affected children have an individual emergency care plan.
