Tackle Football Poll Question - Office of the Republican Leader - Jim Durkin

New legislation moving through the Illinois General Assembly seeks to ban children under age 12 from playing tackle football, in an effort to reduce head injuries. The measure, House Bill 4341, would bar anyone under age 12 from playing tackle football for any organized sports team but would allow children under age 12 to play in touch football and flag football leagues.

Do you agree that youth tackle football should be banned?
