Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear will sign a bill to help protect student athletes today.

The legislation will improve training for sports coaches, helping them better recognize concussions.  It will also identify actions required before an athlete with a suspected concussion or head injury may return to play.

Supporters from the State House and Senate will also be present during the signing, which is happening around 9:30 at a Louisville high school.
