Rep. Giffords' Office Submits Appropriations Request

24-May-2011 On Friday, May 13, 2011, the office of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords submitted an FY12 appropriations request to the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee for the purpose of funding the program authorized through the pending FY12 NDAA to develop medical guidelines specific to post-acute rehabilitation. BIAA is closely following committee activity.

As reported earlier, on May 11, 2011, Rep. Todd Russell Platts, co-chair of the Congressional Brain Injury Task Force, working in collaboration with the office of Rep. Giffords, Task Force members and the Brain Injury Association of America, introduced an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that authorizes $1 million for the development of treatment guidelines for post-acute rehabilitation of traumatic brain injury. The amendment was adopted en bloc by the full House Armed Services Committee by voice vote.
