LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky's student athletes just got a little more protection on the field.
Ky. Gov. Steve Beshear ceremonially signed House Bill 281 at Central High School Monday morning. It prevents middle and high school athletes from continuing to play in a game if they show signs of a concussion.
The legislation requires at least one coach or individual who has completed a safety course to be present at every practice and competition.
Schools are also required to have an emergency plan for dealing with potentially serious injuries.
"It's really important that we get the education out to the couches, to the families, the players, to athletic directors," said Dr. Tad Seifert of the Norton Healthcare Concussion Program.
