In Austin this week, legislators in the house are discussing a proposal that would require high school students in Texas become CPR and Automated External Defibrillator, or AED, certified in order to graduate high school.
Sponsors say the mandatory first aid classes could save lives.
If approved, the 2014-2015 school year would be affected. The classes would be provided for public school students only.
They would have to take a class one time between seventh and twelfth grade.
A Texas Senate meeting has not been scheduled yet.
