Bill would reduce paperwork for parents of school athletes

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Parents of Wisconsin school athletes would have less bureaucratic paperwork under a bill that's up for a public hearing Wednesday. 

Senate Republican Paul Farrow of Pewaukee says parents should only have to sign one form for their school each year, which acknowledges that they know the school's policies on dealing with concussions. 

A law was adopted a year ago requiring athletes under 19 to have their parents sign information sheets about concussions. They're required for every sport -- and some teens compete in three or more sports each year. 

Under Farrow's bill, one form would suffice for all of them.
