School Sports Concussion Safety Bill Signed Into Law

from New Jersey Today

Editor’s note: ACSM, a prominent advocate for appropriate laws and policies on concussion in youth sports, applauds the passage of concussion legislation in New Jersey. On its own behalf and as a leader of a coalition of organizations, ACSM continues to work toward passage and implementation of effective concussion laws in every state and in the U.S. Congress.

A bill which will make New Jersey the state with the most comprehensive concussion prevention and treatment law in the country was signed into law Tuesday at a ceremony at the new Meadowlands Stadium.

“When it comes to New Jersey’s student athletes, we all have a responsibility to make sure their sport is as safe as possible,” said Senator Joseph Vitale, D-Middlesex. “This new law represents common sense solutions when dealing with head trauma, to make sure that the player doesn’t aggravate the injury by returning to the field too soon. It ensures that school officials, coaches and parents have the information they need to make the best choices for their children’s health.” more
