Texas Gets Its!
What have we been up to lately? Here's what we're watching...
Texas state representatives Sylvester Turner, Wayne Smith, and Dan Huberty recently introduced HB766, that if passed, will make it mandatory for an ECG or EKG to be included in sports exams for student athletes. Since athletes must have the physical exam to play anyway, this would not be a huge burden.
The cost would be about $15 and left up to parents to pay. The bill also allows an opt-out for financial or religious reasons.
