Assistance Needed to Insure Funding Of Needed TBI Programs For Brain Injured Veterans

The Brain Injury Association of America has requested that I post this urgent request.

Earlier this week, the Senate passed its version of the defense authorization bill, including the text of the Dignified Treatment of Wounded Warriors Act, which contains critically important provisions to improve TBI care for returning service members.  The House of Representatives passed its defense authorization bill, which does not contain these critical TBI provisions, in May.  Conferees have now been appointed, as the House and Senate will work in conference to produce a final version of the legislation to send to President Bush.

Action Requested: Please contact your Representative today and urge them to sign on to the Congressional Brain Injury Task Force letter urging conferees to retain the Senate’s Dignified Treatment of Wounded Warriors Act provisions in the final version of the defense authorization bill.
