New Bill Introduced Relating to ATs
NATA
NATA, in partnership with AMSSM, is pleased to announce that Reps. Tom Latham (R-IA) and Cedric Richmond (D-LA) introduced H.R. 3722, "To provide protections for certain sports medicine professionals who provide certain medical services in a secondary State." The bill was referred to the House Judiciary and Energy and Commerce Committees.

The bill is aimed specifically at health care professionals that work with sports teams that travel across state lines and would require that if a covered sports medicine professional provides covered medical services to an athlete, an athletic team, or a staff member of an athlete or athletic team in a secondary state, such services shall be deemed to have been provided in the primary state for the following purposes: (1) determining the medical professional liability insurance of that professional, and (2) determining the civil and criminal malpractice liability of that professional.

We encourage our members and friends to contact their members of Congress in support of the bill. Text for this bill can be accessed online.

Are Injury Prevention Priorities Misplaced?
Northwest Times
For all the ongoing angst involving concussion, the injury is almost always far less debilitating than a torn ACL in the knee. In fact, in its haste to reduce head injuries, the NFL seems to have put alternate bull's eyes on its players' knees. League-wide, ACL injuries have increased dramatically in each of the last two seasons. Has the apparent trade-off been worth it? Has there been a trade-off at all?
