The family of a 7-year-old Chesterfield student who died in January after suffering an allergic food reaction in January visited Congress.

Amarria Johnson’s family was pushing for a new law Wednesday to get schools across the country to carry auto-epinephrine injectors in case students suffer a severe allergic reactions.
