Congressional interest in legislation to protect young athletes from the effects of concussions has become so spirited that last week one House committee held a hearing on one bill at the same moment another committee passed a different bill just 400 feet down the hall.

from the Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Chronic traumatic encephalopathy didn't receive much media buzz until University of Pennsylvania football player Owen Thomas committed suicide before a game seemingly out of the blue in April.
