Appropriations Update March 15th, 2011
On Friday, March 11, 2011, the House Appropriations Committee will unveil a three-week continuing resolution (CR) that will extend FY10 funding through April 8, 2011. The current CR is set to expire on March 18, 2011. The bill would make some relatively non-controversial spending cuts, totaling about $6 billion dollars in savings.
BIAA is monitoring the situation closely and working with the Congressional Brain Injury Task Force to make sure that FY2011 appropriations will look favorably on brain injury programs. BIAA is also engaging with both Senate and House Appropriations Committees in preparation for FY2012 appropriations work.
