Checking the blind spot

In Oregon, there is a law in place that helps guide public school officials in how to react to a child with a possible concussion, but that law doesn't address what to do if a child suffers a concussion during private competitions. To address this loophole, concussion experts as well as a skier that had been impacted by this blind spot, led a legal fight that eventually allowed the expansion of this law to also cover "organized youth sports that take place outside public schools."
