The bill cleared a final step in the Michigan Senate Tuesday.

It would update 2012 concussion laws that required a concussion protocol for youth athletes and an awareness program for coaches, volunteers and others. The legislation would add a requirement that concussion training be completed once every three years, unless the state Department of Health and Human Services recommends more frequent training.

The state would have to periodically review the training program.

The bill (Senate Bill 352) would also clarify that universities and colleges do not need to secure parental waivers for students participating in intramural sports.
