Minnesota Legislation

I do not have the actual copy of the bill, but Governor Mark Dayton is expected to sign the concussion legislation today in Minneapolis, from Star Tribune;

The bill also tightens return-to-play standards for athletes who suffer concussions — requiring an OK from a qualified health care provider before they can resume sports activities. Opposition to the bill faded when language was added, clarifying that it did not increase the liability of any cities or schools or organizations that provide youth sports.

Along with the above Minnesota coaches will have to complete on-line training for concussions.  With the addition of Minnesota this now brings our total to 18 states with legislation.
