Panel OKs Fee To Raise Funds for Spinal Cord Injury Studies
On Tuesday, the Assembly Committee on Public Safety voted 4-3 to approve a bill (AB 190) that would direct revenue from traffic violations to a spinal cord injury research fund. The $3 surcharge on moving-traffic violations could raise $11 million annually for the research fund. The bill now moves to the Assembly Committee on Appropriations next month and could be approved by the Legislature by the end of summer.
