COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP/WVOC) - New measures to protect students from concussions and fatal allergies are among those becoming law in South Carolina.
Governor Nikki Haley signed 28 bills last week after the regular legislative session ended.
One requires school coaches to take possible concussions seriously. It mandates on-site examinations for any suspected concussion.
Students who are showing signs of concussions must be taken out of play immediately and must have a doctor's clearance to return.
Another law allows a nurse or other designated person at a school to have and administer a life-saving injection to a student suffering a severe allergic reaction.
