Mosbrucker TBI Bill Approved
The Washington State Senate unanimously approved and sent to the governor a bill authored by 14th District Representative Gina Mosbrucker that would provide information to domestic violence victims about the signs and symptoms of traumatic brain injuries. Under the bill, the Department of Social and Health Services would work with the Washington Traumatic Brain Injury Strategic Partnership Advisory Council to develop a statewide website for domestic violence victims with information regarding TBI. It would increase law enforcement training to recognize the signs and symptoms of TBI and encourage officers responding to domestic violence incidents to inform victims of the website. The measure previously passed the House and now goes to the governor for his consideration.
