Brown Signs Bill Aimed at Reducing Concussion Risk Among Middle School, High School Football Players
On Monday, Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed a bill (AB 2127) that aims to reduce concussion and brain injury risk among high school and middle school football players by limiting the number of full-contact practices allowed. Under the measure, such middle and high schools will be limited to holding full-contact practices two or fewer times each week and prohibited from holding such practices during the off-season.
