With the Christmas holiday looming, the Senate is working around the clock to finish passage of their health care reform package. BIAA continues to play a large role in securing important provisions necessary to provide access to care for the brain injury community.
Currently, the Senate is working to muster the 60 votes needed to overcome filibusters and conclude a series of votes by Christmas Eve. BIAA is actively engaged in this process and will issue a special edition of Policy Corner when a resolution has been reached.
On another note, thank you to all of our grassroots advocates who have helped to make many positive changes possible in 2009. I look forward to working with all of you to further our initiatives to provide access to treatment, increased research, services, awareness and funding for people with brain injury in the New Year!
