February 15, 2018
SB 287 (McClellan) has been approved by the full Senate and has been approved by the House Committee on Health, Welfare and Institutions. The bill will enable the collection of information about the numbers of people in Virginia who have sustained a spinal cord injury and the severity of that injury, and will allow that data to be made available to the Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services in order to develop a plan for better statewide services to meet the needs of individuals who have sustained such an injury.
