With all the strangeness and partisan battles going on in the Florida Legislature this session, there are still some worthy bills under consideration. One such bill is HB 301/SB 730. Definitely worth our support!

From St. Augustine.com:

A significant student athlete bill is moving closer to approval by the Legislature this session. We believe it's about time.

Our energetic future leaders deserve all the protections they can get in competitive school sports where they may misstep for the sake of winning and could suffer a life-long injury.

State Rep. Ron Renuart, R-Ponte Vedra Beach, is the sponsor of House Bill 301 which would require an independent sanctioning authority for youth athletic teams and the Florida High School Activities Association to adopt guidelines, bylaws and policies relating to risk of concussion and head injury in youth athletes. It also requires written clearance from a medical doctor to play after injury.

Renuart is an osteopathic physician and recently served as the chief medical officer for the Florida National Guard. He also has been involved in youth sports programs. His bill has cleared the K-20 innovation subcommittee and has two more stops; the health and human services access subcommittee and the full education committee before final House action.

A companion bill, SB 730, is in the Senate. It has made it through the Health Regulation Committee and moves on to the Rules Committee before heading to the Senate floor. The bill's sponsor is Sen. Anitere Flores, R-Miami.
