Limited hitting bill voted down by state committee for second straight day
For the second straight day, a state education committee voted down a bill seeking to limit full-contact football drills.
The state's Elementary and Secondary Education committee voted Rep. Carol Sente's House Bill 1205 down, 8-5, Thursday morning in Springfield. The same measure was voted down 6-5 on Wednesday.
The bill sought to limit full-contact drills to two days a week and prohibit the practice all together during the offseason and summer. Under the bill, coaches would also be required to complete an online concussion training program.
