Sports Concussions Reach the Connecticut Legislature

The Hartford Courant‘s Capitol Watch blog reports that the Democratic majority in the state Senate seeks to make Connecticut the third state in the nation — after Washington and Oregon — to pass legislation requiring more stringent protocols for student-athletes for concussions.

That’s a long way from banning chair shots by the Nutmeg State’s biggest exporter of popular culture, World Wrestling Entertainment. But some would say it’s a start.
