Rezin concussion bill passes unanimously

Posted by wlpo on May 3, 2015

The fact that Senate bill 7 passed unanimously is good news to sponsor, State Senator Sue Rezin. The bipartisan bill requires schools to develop policies to help concussion victims return to the classroom. Doctors would have to clear a student before returning to class or athletics. The bill also proposes – based on resources, that school districts create an emergency action plan in the case of serious injury.

Rezin’s own son is slowly recuperating from the last of 3 concussions on the football field and was a key inspiration for the bill. The bill would effect elementary, middle and high schools. It now goes before the House.
