Look for a special appropriations edition of Policy Corner this Friday, August 6, 2010. BIAA will be analyzing the Senate Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education committee report this week and will alert grassroots advocates on Friday regarding the funding status of TBI programs.
Also, this afternoon, the Senate opted to postpone a vote on an amendment which would extend increased Medicaid payments to states. In the next few days Senator Reid is expected to offer a revised version of the legislation. This extension is vital to people with brain injury and BIAA will alert grassroots advocates when action is necessary.
