As of Jan. 30, 2014, lawmakers in every state have lined up behind the players and their parents to help make the game safer.

All 50 states states and Washington, D.C., have passed laws protecting student-athletes from returning to play too soon after suffering the effects of a concussion. 

Through education and proper medical treatment, the goal is to better understand and recognize concussion and its symptoms in order to help athletes return safely to competition.
