House Bill 291 was unanimously passed by the House of Representatives the week of February 20, a big step towards protecting the youth athletes of Florida. Senate Bill 256 hopefully will pass through the Budget Committee on Tuesday, February 28th. If so, it will move to the Senate Floor within the next week. I will be in speaking at a press conference on Wednesday in Tallahassee together with the NFL about the dangers of concussions and the need to protect kids from them. I will also be meeting with Florida state legislators to promote the bill. I expect this trip to build momentum for the battle to come on the Senate Floor, one which I hope will result in a safer Florida for youth athletes.
