Spinal Cord Disability Research Bill Advances

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – The PA Senate approved legislation to fund spinal cord disability research in the Commonwealth. Senate Bill 31, which now goes to the state House for consideration, would create the Spinal Cord Disability Research Grant Program aimed at discovering new and innovative treatments and rehabilitative efforts for spinal cord disabilities. The measure invests $1 million into a grant program that awards grants to research institutions for research into spinal cord injuries. The funding does not use new revenue, but rather existing money dedicated toward health-related research programs. Pennsylvania would join a dozen other states in supporting the effort.
