Lions Throw Support Behind Concussion Awareness Legislation

Lewand promoted the benefits of Senate Bill 1122, which would require youth sports organizations and schools to adopt concussion-awareness guidelines.
It’s already a requirement in 35 states.
Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville calls it a common-sense approach and says the legislation will be on the floor this week.
