TBI Act Reauthorization
On September 30, 2011, BIAA, NASHIA, and NDRN met with both the offices of Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr., Co-chair of the Congressional Brain Injury Task Force, and Senator Tom Harkin, Chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee to discuss TBI Act reauthorization in 2012. Both offices were receptive to entertaining changes in the legislation next year.
TBI Act stakeholders will continue to lay the legislative groundwork for reauthorization of the TBI Act in 2012. Check back in future editions of Policy Corner for updates on our progress.
