Lawmakers in Albany are expected to pass the first statewide standards on how public schools should deal with football players and other student-athletes who might have suffered head injuries.
The legislation would keep student-athletes suspected of having a concussion out of activities for at least 24 hours after they are symptom-free and permission from a physician would be needed for the athlete to resume sports.
The legislation comes as concerns continue to rise about the serious long-term impact of concussions, especially among high school athletes.
