Legislative Update
October 11, 2011

The October 10 editions of USA Today and Military Times featured articles on the current plans by Congress to cut FY2012 defense research funding. Both Blinded Veterans Association (BVA) and NAEVR expressed their concerns, as did champion Cong. Jim Moran (D-VA), who urged support for increased funding by stating that, “If we are going to send our armed forces in harm’s way, then we have an obligation to invest in the development of the best possible care and treatment.”
