Our view: Regulating football practice not state's job
Head injuries in football are a serious issue, one that needs to be addressed on all levels.
But by introducing House Bill 1205, state Rep. Carol Sente (D – Lincolnshire) is going too far. She has the right motivation in proposing legislation that would limit high school football teams to one day of contact drills per week, but the General Assembly would be overstepping its bounds by regulating practice.
This is not a political issue. This is an issue for parents, football coaches, high school administrators and the Illinois High School Association to address.
