Law requires more concussion information
ST. PAUL -- Kayla Meyer stood next to Gov. Mark Dayton, beaming, during a Wednesday ceremony celebrating a new law requiring coaches, parents and young athletes get more information about concussions.
The New Prague, Minn., youth was one of several young athletes who suffered concussions to tell legislators this year that concussions need to be taken more seriously. Now, Meyer said, other young athletes need to learn how serious the brain injury can be.
