Sente’s bill limiting football practice contact voted down
Football coaches don’t want state lawmakers telling them how to do their jobs.
On Wednesday, members of the state Elementary and Secondary Education Committee in Springfield agreed, defeating Rep. Carol Sente’s Football Practice Hitting Limitation Act, by a 6-5 vote.
Committee member Rep. Barbara Wheeler, R-Crystal Lake, said House Bill 1205 will come up for a vote again in committee today. If passed, the bill would limit full-contact drills to two days a week and prohibit the drills during the offseason and summer camps.
