TBI Act Signed Into Law
December 4, 2014
On November 26, President Obama signed into law the Traumatic Brain Injury Reauthorization Act of 2014 (S. 2539). The TBI Act reauthorizes existing TBI programs within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and provides appropriations for those programs through FY2019. The legislation also provides new authority for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to review brain injury management in children, identify ongoing and potential opportunities for research, and instructs the CDC to report back to Congress on their findings.
