House Energy and Commerce Committee passed H.R. 1418

Yesterday afternoon, the full House Energy and Commerce Committee passed H.R. 1418, legislation to reauthorize the Traumatic Brain Injury Act.

Earlier this week, the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health approved the Traumatic Brain Injury Act of 2008 and forwarded it on for consideration by the full Committee. Now that the full Committee has passed the bill, the legislation is expected to be brought up on suspension for consideration on the House floor when Congress reconvenes after a two-week recess, which will begin on Monday.

The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) wishes to thank Rep. Pascrell, Rep. Platts, as well as Rep. Pallone and Chairman Dingell, for swiftly moving this bill forward. In addition, BIAA enthusiastically thanks all of its grassroots advocates for both longstanding and recent efforts to support timely reauthorization of the TBI Act! This is a very positive development towards the goal of getting the TBI Act reauthorized before the end of this year, and a very exciting development for Brain Injury Awareness Month!
