BIAA submitted a letter to the House Energy and Commerce Committee encouraging swift passage of the conTACT Act of 2009 (HR 1347), applauding the bill’s proposal to provide grants to states to ensure that elementary and secondary schools implement concussion management guidelines by funding computerized pre-season baseline and post-injury neuropsychological testing for student athletes.

BIAA will continue to track the progress of this measure and will advocate on its behalf.
