24 Feb: Codey Introduces Measure To Protect Student-Athletes From Concussions

TRENTON – On Monday, Senator Richard J. Codey introduced legislation to better protect student-athletes from concussions and brain injuries as a result of their sport, and will be pushing for its swift approval in the State Legislature.

“When it comes to younger athletes and concussions, it’s far better to be safe than sorry,” said Senator Codey, D-Essex. “We need to make sure that athletic trainers at New Jersey’s high schools have the proper training and experience to quickly identify and properly treat concussions in their athletes. Through this bill, we’re taking a necessary step to make sure that school sports are a safer, more rewarding experience for the student-athletes involved.”
