I'm doing a lot of work on these index threads, but I'm not going to research every state's FA laws & guidance documents  :).

-----------------------------------------------------------

Allergic Living has a great list that includes many state FA laws & guidelines.  It's a good place to start looking when researching whether your own state has FA laws and/or guidelines.

If, while doing your own research, you find state FA info that is not included in their list, I would suggest contacting Allergic Living to let them know so that they can consider adding it to their list.

If you know of any new laws or guidelines that we’ve missed, let us know at: editor@allergicliving.com


FARE also has some state info here:
http://www.foodallergy.org/laws-and-regulations/guidelines-for-schools

-----------------------------------------------------------

We already had several state law/guideline threads created on our board.  Some of them include board discussions.  If you want to discuss law/guideline info for a particular state, I would suggest looking to see if there is an existing state thread started that you could post in.  Sometimes it will make sense to start a new state law/guideline thread. 

New info can also be added to our state list if you post it in the 504 suggestions thread.

If info is already on the Allergic Living and/or FARE list, I usually did not include it in our list unless a thread was already started on our board.

Maryland public schools will all soon be keeping emergency supplies of epinephrine on hand for students who may have an allergic reaction, and patient advocates are applauding the new law.

NEW!  Guidelines for the Care of Students with Food Allergies at Risk for Anaphylaxis
In response to the increase in students with diagnosed food allergies at-risk for anaphylaxis, Senate Bill 27 (2011, 82nd Legislative Session) amends Chapter 38 of the Texas Education Code by adding Section 38.0151. This section requires the Board of Trustees of each school district and the governing body or appropriate officers of open-enrollment charter schools to adopt and administer a policy for the care of students with diagnosed food allergy at risk for anaphylaxis.
