House of Representatives
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: September 23, 2014 05:08 PM
From: Representative Richard R. Stevenson and Rep. Tim Briggs
To: All House members
Subject: Safety In Youth Sports Act

We will be introducing a resolution directing the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee to review the Commonwealth’s program of providing intervention for young athletes who sustain a brain injury, as required under the Safety in Youth Sports Act.

As co-chairs of the House Brain Injury Caucus, we are very proud of the Safety in Youth Sports Act which was passed in 2011. However, as the science and awareness of evaluating and treating concussions in athletes is rapidly evolving, we believe we have an obligation to ensure that this Act achieves the results envisioned by its passage.

The Legislative Budget and Finance Committee’s report will be due within 12 months after the adoption of this resolution.

Thank you.

Introduced as HR1064
