Concussion law to Haslam
Governor Bill Haslam will now be considering a proposal to require schools and youth athletic programs to adopt a concussion policy. The bill passed unanimously in the state senate last month and was approved by the house 93-3 on Thursday. The law would require that a child be removed from a sporting event if they show signs of a concussion. It would also require schools to adopt guidelines educating coaches, administrators, and athletes on the symptoms and dangers of concussion. This bill also requires medical clearance before the child can resume the sport or activity (CC)
