Helmet Manufacturers Targeted in New Bill to Improve Athletes' Safety

Comments (0)
Companies that make helmets for young athletes could have just nine months to voluntry improve their standards for reducing the number of brain injuries sustained by athletes under the age of 18 if new legislation is passed. If the companies failed to improve their standards, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) would be required to set standards, MedPage Today reported.
