The State Board of Regents is close to finalizing a new CPR graduation requirement for high school students in New York
Last year, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the bill requiring schools to teach CPR as part of graduation requirements.
New York will be the 22nd state to require CPR training for high school graduation.
The new rule still needs final approval by the Board of Regents before it becomes official.
Regents said Monday say they plan on making a final decision within a month.
