by Sammy Edmonds posted Mar 11 2014 3:21PM
State Senator Jim Banks’ legislation to assist Hoosier veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder or traumatic brain injury passed the House unanimously Monday.
 
The amended bill would create programs to develop and fund services for veterans.  The Veterans Disability Clinic Fund would provide grants to certain law schools that maintain a veterans disability clinic.  The Indiana Veteran Recovery Program and Fund would provide treatments and services to veterans with PTSD or traumatic brain injury.  And the Brain Injury Rehabilitation and Community Living Commission would establish a statewide plan to address the needs of those affected by a traumatic brain injury.
 
The legislation furthermore directs the Indiana State Department of Health to study the implementation of such programs.
 
The bill now returns to the Senate.
