California Leaders Move to Tighten Concussion Rules
from the San Jose Mercury News
California could be moving toward tough rules to protect young athletes from concussions, with new legislation and a proposal from the state's high school sports federation calling for doctors to weigh in before any injured student is allowed back on the field. The proposals follow a swell of media attention -- especially after the near death of San Jose High Academy football player Matt Blea -- and new scientific evidence that shows how susceptible young people in particular are to the debilitating effects of brain trauma.
