On Tuesday July 27, 2010, the Senate Subcommittee on Labor, Health and
Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies (Labor/HHS) will consider
a draft version of the FY11 appropriations bill. Contained in the bill
will be provisions important to people with brain injury including programs
authorized through the TBI Act as well as the TBI Model Systems of Care program.
If you haven't taken action on this matter and would like to write
your Senators to advocate for increased funding, there's still time!
BIAA will monitor the situation closely and will alert grassroots advocates
if further action is necessary.
Also, stay tuned next week for additional appropriations alerts concerning
possible consideration of a draft bill by the House Appropriations Committee.
