(WASHINGTON D.C.) - Indiana Congressman Mike Pence (R-06) is one of several legislators sponsoring a bill that would address brain injuries in children.

The National Pediatric Acquired Brain Injury Plan Act is designed to create a standardized system of care for brain injuries and concussions about children and young adults.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 765,000 American youth aged 25 and younger enter an emergency department every year with a new traumatic brain injury.

More than 80,000 are hospitalized and over 11,000 die annually.
