The state of Indiana’s House Education Committee is having a hearing on a bill that will expand concession protocols to more student athletes. According to the Herald Bulletin, The Indiana Senate approved the bill with a 41-9 vote but it has to go to the House meeting before it can be passed.
The concussion bill will require coaches to become certified in a player safety education course & they will have to renew that certificate every two years. The bill would also extend the concussion protocol to all sports from 5th to 12th grade. Currently, the state only has a protocol for Football players in grades 8th to 12th.
