    Voting

    It is important that you vote for thr Supreme Court candidates on the Nonpartisan Section of the ballot. A stright party note is NOT enough for the Supreme Court justices, and will not result in your vote being cast for the Supreme Court.

    BEFORE YOU GIVE YOUR BALLOT BACK, VOTE KELLY,JOHNSON AND McCORMACK.

    Thank you.

    IT'S OVER!!! - MI. Legislators Adjourn!!!





    As you may have heard or read already, the MI. Legislators adjourned early this morning! While this legislative year will not officially end until December 31, 2012; it is highly unlikely that the legislators will return to Lansing.

    WE, THE PEOPLE were victorious in our fight to preserve Michigan's Auto No-Fault System during this legislative year! This absolutely will be one of the most notable stories of this legislature. Truly it is a David vs. Goliath story! Our fight to preserve No-Fault did what so many other issues failed to do; namely, create a cohesive coalition made up of Democrats and Republicans who simply would not yield to the pressures from the chairman of the Insurance Committee, the Speaker of the House, or the Governor's Office.

    WE, THE PEOPLE are you and the members of the Brain Injury Association of Michigan, the Michigan Brain Injury Providers Council, the many Health Care Providers, and the members of 26 other coalitions who sustained this battle for one and a half years with letter writing campaigns, innumerable visits with legislators and their staff, hundreds of media interviews, Op-Eds, Letters to the Editor, Town Hall Meetings, Rallies, Webinars, billboards, TV & Radio Ads, lawsuits against the MCCA and literally hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of these efforts. And WE, THE PEOPLE were going against one of the strongest and moneyed industries in this state and the nation - the insurance industry.

    ON BEHALF OF THE BRAIN INJURY ASSOCIATION OF MICHIGAN, THE MICHIGAN BRAIN INJURY PROVIDERS COUNCIL AND CPAN - THE COALITION PROTECTING AUTO NO-FAULT, WE OFFER OUR PROFOUND AND SINCERE THANKS!
    This battle simply could not have been won without you!

    Let's take a few days to savor this win; but let me urge you to rest and prepare for what will likely be an even greater battle these next two years.

    OTHER 2011 - 2012 LEGISLATIVE ACCOMPLISHMENTS
    S.B. 756 - Kelsey's Law was PASSED! This law's purpose is to prevent young, inexperienced teenage drivers who are regulated by the Graduated Licensing Rules from using their cell phones while driving a car.
    Sports Concussion Bills PASSED earlier this fall and have been signed into law by the governor! These bills establish protocols on the removal of athletes from competition or athletic practices if they are suspected of having sustained a concussion and cannot return to play until cleared by a health professional.
    Brain Injury Act INTRODUCED. We expect to reintroduce this bill again in 2013. This bill will put into law the term and definition of Acquired Brain Injury, as well as establish periodic reporting requirements about brain injury incidence and services needed by persons with a brain injury.
    Motorcycle Helmet Law Repeal - Unfortunately, as hard as we worked, this law was repealed. We will look options of next steps next year.
    On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Brain Injury Association of Michigan, we wish you a wonderful Holiday Season and a New Year filled with good health and great success!
