Natasha’s Law: TX HB2038


The Texas Governor has signed the concussion legislation into law, it is called Natasha’s Law; named after Natasha Helmick a very strong advocate for this legislation.

We happened upon this legislative piece when we were examining the Illinois process, and felt it was very good and forward thinking.  The highlights again include;

  • Concussion Management Team
  • Removal from Play
  • Waiver and Graded Protocol to Return to Play
  • Specific Education/Training for all HCP’s
  • State Wide Tracking/Logging of Concussions

The full text of the TX Bill can be seen at that link.  Texas is now the 21st state with enacted legislation.
