State weighs in on concussions

The state legislature has now become involved in high school sports by passing a law that puts the onus on teams whenever a concussion is involved. This Seattle Times article explains the law passed by the swish of Chris Gregoire's pen. The idea is admirable, but it seems to be one more case of Big Brother deeming what's best for we, the unfortunate masses. Don't we as parents have enough common sense and responsibility, along with coaches and team physicians to look after the health welfare of our children athletes without having one more law hanging over our heads? Apparantly not in the eyes of the elite.
