Bill description: HB 558 allows certain specially trained chiropractors to return a youth athlete to play following recovery from a concussion.

Rating: +1

Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market? Conversely, does it eliminate or reduce government intervention in the market?

HB 558 amends Section 33-1625, Idaho Code, to allow a licensed chiropractic physician to evaluate athletes who have experienced a concussion and authorize them to return to play after recovery. Current law allows other medical professionals to do this but excludes chiropractors. To meet the requirements of this subsection, the chiropractor must have "successfully completed a nationally recognized or board of chiropractic physicians approved concussion management education program that includes return to play training."
