On Monday April 22nd, 2013 Governor Steve Bullock signed The Dylan Steigers Protection of Youth Athletes Act (SB 112) into law. Montana is the 45th state to adopt concussion policy aimed at protecting youth athletes from the lifelong effects of multiple unrecognized concussions. This bill provides concussion education to players, parents, coaches, and medical professionals. Additionally, this bill mandates that players who exhibit signs and symptoms of concussion are removed from play, and can return to competition only after receiving clearance to play from a medical professional.
