Amended bill limiting contact moving forward
When a proposed state law limiting contact among football players was met with stern opposition last month, the bill’s sponsor pledged to call an audible once she had more information.
State Rep. Carol Sente (D-Lincolnshire) will move forward with an amended version of House Bill 1205, which would confine full-padded football practices to two days a week during the season and prohibit it completely during the offseason and summer camps.
Sente will present the bill to the state education committee Wednesday in Springfield.
