Miss. lawmakers push youth concussion law

Senate and House leaders are pushing for a youth concussion law, with Mississippi the last state in the country without such a measure.

Sen. Brice Wiggins, R-Pascagoula, has introduced a bill that would require any public or private schools that have youth athletic programs adopt a “concussion management and return to play policy.” House Public Health Chairman Sam Mims, R-McComb, has mirror legislation in that chamber. The lawmakers worked with the state Medical Association, the NFL and other groups in drafting the measures, Wiggins said.
