An alert about new legislation for the prevention of brain injury has been issued. This bill would make sure that brain injury patients such as stroke victims are given the most quick and effective treatment as possible.

Among the measures included in this omnibus legislative package are two bills which are important to brain injury prevention and care in this country. These two bills are The STOP Stroke Act (S. 999/H.R. 477) and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Paralysis Act (S. 1183/H.R. 1727).

The STOP Stroke Act is bipartisan legislation by Senators Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) and Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) that would help ensure that all stroke patients are treated as quickly and effectively as possible. Among other things, the STOP Stroke Act would authorize a grant program to help provide states with resources to ensure that patients have access to quality stroke education, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation services by establishing coordinated stroke care systems.
