A bill has recently been passed in Iowa that could prevent brain injuries from occurring during youth sports activities.
The bill would force the athletic programs of high schools to give out information to parents that would detail the risks involved with each sport. It would also discuss the repercussions of sustaining a serious brain injury. Players who may have incurred a brain injury or concussion during a sporting game will immediately be taken out, according to the bill.
Several organizations have come out in support of the bill, including the NFL. Officials of the NFL stated that it was important to increase awareness and prevent brain injuries in children.
