2014 Concussion Legislation

PUBLIC ACT 14-66 AN ACT CONCERNING YOUTH ATHLETICS AND CONCUSSIONS – CSMS was successful in moving forward to protect all children and youth who play contact sports in Connecticut. This law strengthens the definition of a concussion, and clarifies notification and return to play responsibilities. It also establishes a statewide Task Force to develop recommendations on expanding the statute to all youth, not only those participating in scholastic sports. This task force will have significant physician and CSMS involvement. Among others, appointees will include:

• A member of CSMS
• A representative of the American Association of Neurology
• A physician trained in sports medicine
• A representative of Connecticut Children’s Medical Center
• A pediatrician
