    Descriptive info: Advocacy Report 2011.. The First Regular Session of the 96.. th.. Missouri General Assembly ended on May 13.. During the session several bills were filed that may impact the access to services for Survivors of brain injury and the prevention of brain injuries.. The Brain Injury Association of Missouri (BIA-MO) was a leading organization in the passage of the Inter-Scholastics Youth Sports Brain Injury Prevention Act (House Bill 300).. This legislation is commonly referred to as the Sports Concussion Legislation and it protects student-athletes from possible long-term effects of a sports-related concussion.. Governor Jay Nixon signed HB300 on July 13, 2011.. Key components of HB300 are:.. Requires annual education for coaches, parents and athletes.. Removes the athlete from practice or play when a concussion is suspected.. Requires clearance for return to play by a licensed health care provider trained in the evaluation and management of a concussion.. BIA-MO was active in efforts to prevent brain injuries due to motorcycle crashes.. Bills to repeal Missouri s all-rider motorcycle helmet law were filed in both the Missouri House of Representatives and the Senate.. Senate testimony was provided with neither bill passing.. This is great news for Missouri because motorcycle helmets save lives.. Regarding access to services, House Bill 10 reinstated a 1.. 9% increase to the Department of Mental Health (DMH) Provider Rate.. This increase will help provide more services for individuals with developmental disabilities, including persons whose  ...   regarding individuals with developmental disabilities.. The majority of provisions of HB555 were included in the final version passed by the Missouri Senate.. Two significant provisions of the bill are the creation of Disability History and Awareness Month, and the expansion of the MO Health Net Oversight Committee to 19 members.. Governor Jay Nixon signed HB555 on July 12, 2011.. Comprehensive Day Rehabilitation Services as a covered MO Health Net service was not included in the passed version of HB555.. Rep.. Jeff Grisamore, District 47, has vowed to continue to work on this important issue in the Missouri House.. As a leading advocacy organization in Jefferson City, BIA-MO will continue to work with legislators to enact legislation to prevent brain injuries and provide access to services for persons with brain injury.. BIA-MO will be active in the implementation of HB300 and changes to the MBIAC.. Advocacy efforts will also include involvement with the MBIAC, Congress on Disability Policy, and Missouri Association of Rehabilitation Facilities.. Your advocacy efforts are needed too..
