The youth concussion legislation that I have been supporting has been making progress through Florida legislative process. The bill has now passed through all of the Senate and House committees. I cannot express how strongly I want this essential legislation to be passed this year. We need to make sure that the youth athletes of Florida are better protected from concussions. As the devastating consequences of concussions continue to gain headlines, exemplified by the hundreds of former NFL players suing the league because of the struggles they endure due to brain injuries stemming from their playing days, it becomes increasingly obvious that we need to protect kids from these potential dangers. The goal of the legislation is to do just that, and I hope to provide news of its further success in the near future.
