Gov. Brown Mulls Bill To Require Concussion Training
On Monday, the California Assembly voted 65-0 to approve a bill (AB 1451) by Assembly member Mary Hayashi (D-Hayward) that would require high school coaches to receive biennial training on how to identify and respond to concussions. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has 12 days to decide whether to sign or veto the measure, which would take effect in January 2013.
