Proposed Alabama Law to Provide Money for Spinal Cord Injury Research

 A bill that has recently passed the Alabama Senate called the T.J. Atchison Spinal Cord Injury Act would require drivers violating Alabama's traffic laws to pay an additional $1, $5, or $10 on top of their ticket for spinal cord injury research at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.

The bill is named for T.J. Atchison, paralyzed in a 2010 car accident. It is expected to bring in $500,000 per year for spinal cord injury research. The Spain Rehabilitation Center at the University of Alabama-Brimingham would administer the money. To learn more about the proposed legislation, check out the link below...
