                          Purpose and Summary

    H.R. 1098, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Reauthorization Act 
of 2013, would reauthorize the TBI Act of 2008 and continue 
brain injury prevention and surveillance activities at the 
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The bill also 
would provide for State grants administered by Health Resources 
and Services Administration (HRSA) to help families access 
needed services such as rehabilitation and long-term care. In 
addition, HRSA currently provides grants to States for the 
protection and advocacy of TBI patients. The bill also would 
allow these grant programs to move from HRSA to another agency 
within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in 
order to better coordinate TBI activities with services and 
support available to older Americans and individuals with other 
disabilities.

                  Background and Need for Legislation

    Brain injury is a leading cause of death and disability 
that affects persons of all ages, races, and income levels.\1\ 
TBI is a particularly concerning health issue among current and 
former military personnel and has been described as ``one of 
the signature injuries of troops wounded in Afghanistan and 
Iraq.''\2\ TBI can cause epilepsy and increase the risk for 
Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and other brain 
disorders that become more prevalent with age.\3\

IF14-Wstate-NageleD_20131120.pdf.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    There were 2.4 million emergency department visits, 
hospitalizations, or deaths associated with TBI in the United 
States in 2009.\4\ According to the CDC, on average, 1.7 
million Americans will sustain a TBI each year.\5\ It is 
estimated that up to 90,000 of these individuals will 
experience long-term, sometimes life-long, impairments as a 
result of their injury.\6\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Timely and comprehensive treatment is vital to save lives 
and improve the quality of life for TBI survivors. Individuals 
with TBI may need a variety of services and support, including 
rehabilitation, counseling, academic and vocational 
accommodations, independent living assistance, transportation 
assistance, and vocational training. The TBI Program was first 
established in 1996 and reauthorized in 2001 and 2008 to 
improve access to these services and supports, among other 
goals.\7\ Through the TBI Program, State and Territorial 
governments receive funding to help individuals with TBI and 
their families receive the comprehensive care and services they 
need to manage ongoing conditions caused by their injuries.

    The TBI Act of 2008 directed the Directors of CDC and the 
National Institutes of Health (NIH)--in consultation with the 
Secretaries of Defense and Veterans Affairs--to submit a report 
to Congress describing how CDC can improve TBI surveillance 
efforts for individuals formerly in the military and 
recommending ways in which these civilian and non-civilian 
departments and agencies can collaborate further on TBI 
diagnostic tools and treatments.\8\ CDC and NIH completed this 
report in June 2013, which included agency-specific 
recommendations as well as five general recommendations: 
strengthen collaboration, utilize standard definitions, enhance 
coding and classification, improve dissemination, and build an 
evidence base.\9\

                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                   Washington, DC, January 8, 2014.
Hon. Fred Upton,
Chairman, Committee on Energy and Commerce,
House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed cost estimate for H.R. 1098, the 
Traumatic Brain Injury Reauthorization Act of 2013.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Lisa Ramirez-
Branum.
            Sincerely,
                                               Douglas W. Elmendorf
    Enclosure.

H.R. 1098--Traumatic Brain Injury Reauthorization Act of 2013

    Summary: H.R. 1098 would amend provisions of the Public 
Health Service Act that authorize the Department of Health and 
Human Services to conduct activities related to traumatic brain 
injury. Those activities, including the study and surveillance 
of traumatic brain injury and the awarding of grants that 
support access to services, are carried out by the Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Health Resources 
and Services Administration (HRSA).
    The bill would authorize the appropriation of about $16 
million annually for fiscal years 2014 through 2018 for 
activities related to traumatic brain injury. CBO estimates 
that implementing the bill would cost about $74 million over 
the 2014-2019 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized 
amounts. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this 
legislation because it would not affect direct spending or 
revenues.
    The bill contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
    Estimated cost to the Federal Government: The estimated 
budgetary impact of H.R. 1098 is shown in the following table. 
The costs of this legislation fall within budget function 550 
(health).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: Numbers may not sum to totals because of rounding.

    Basis of estimate: H.R. 1098 would authorize annual 
appropriations of about $16 million each year for fiscal years 
2014 through 2018 for CDC and HRSA to administer activities 
related to traumatic brain injury. The Congress appropriated 
about $16 million for such activities for fiscal year 2013. 
Sequestration under the Budget Control Act of 2011 reduced the 
2013 funding to about $15 million. That reduced funding level 
has been continued in fiscal year 2014 through January 15, 
2014. For this estimate, CBO assumes that the bill will be 
enacted in early 2014 and that the authorized amounts will be 
appropriated for each year.
    The bill would authorize the appropriation of $6.1 million 
annually for the fiscal year 2014-2018 period for CDC to 
provide grants to states to develop or operate surveillance 
systems that measure the incidence and prevalence of traumatic 
brain injury. The authorized appropriations also would support 
CDC's efforts to study traumatic brain injury. Based on 
historical spending for those activities, CBO estimates that 
implementing those provisions would cost about $29 million over 
the 2014-2019 period, assuming the appropriation of specified 
amounts.
    H.R. 1098 would authorize the appropriation of $9.7 million 
annually for fiscal years 2014 through 2018 for HRSA to provide 
grants to state and tribal governments to expand access to care 
and protection services for individuals with traumatic brain 
injury. Based on historical patterns of spending for those 
activities, CBO estimates that implementing those provisions 
would cost about $45 million over the 2014-2019 period, 
assuming appropriation of the specified amounts.
    Pay-As-You-Go considerations: None.
    Intergovernmental and private-sector impact: H.R. 1098 
contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as 
defined in UMRA. State, local, and tribal governments that 
provide traumatic brain injury services could benefit from 
grant funds authorized by the bill.
    Estimate prepared by: Federal costs: Lisa Ramirez-Branum 
and Santiago Vallinas; Impact on state, local, and tribal 
governments: Lisa Ramirez-Branum; Impact on the private sector: 
Alexia Diorio.
    Estimate approved by: Holly Harvey, Deputy Assistant 
Director for Budget Analysis.

                       Federal Mandates Statement

    The Committee adopts as its own the estimate of Federal 
mandates prepared by the Director of the Congressional Budget 
Office pursuant to section 423 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform 
Act.

                    Duplication of Federal Programs

    No provision of H.R. 1098 establishes or reauthorizes a 
program of the Federal Government known to be duplicative of 
another Federal program, a program that was included in any 
report from the Government Accountability Office to Congress 
pursuant to section 21 of Public Law 111-139, or a program 
related to a program identified in the most recent Catalog of 
Federal Domestic Assistance.

                  Disclosure of Directed Rule Makings

    The Committee estimates that enacting H.R. 1098 would not 
specifically direct to be completed a rulemaking within the 
meaning of 5 U.S.C. 551.

                      Advisory Committee Statement

    No advisory committees within the meaning of section 5(b) 
of the Federal Advisory Committee Act were created by this 
legislation.

                  Applicability to Legislative Branch

    The Committee finds that the legislation does not relate to 
the terms and conditions of employment or access to public 
services or accommodations within the meaning of section 
102(b)(3) of the Congressional Accountability Act.

             Section-by-Section Analysis of the Legislation


Section 1. Short title

Injury Reauthorization Act of 2013.''

Section 2. CDC programs for prevention and surveillance of Traumatic 
        Brain Injury

    Section 2 would reauthorize the CDC programs for the 
prevention and surveillance of TBI (sections 393B and 393C of 
the Public Health Service Act (PHSA)) at the currently-
appropriated level of $6.1 million for each of fiscal years 
2014 through 2018.
    Section 2 also would require a report to Congress no later 
than 24 months after the date of enactment by the Secretary, 
acting through the Directors of CDC and NIH, and in 
consultation with the Secretaries of Defense and Veterans 
Affairs, identifying which of the recommendations from the June 
2013 report have been adopted and outlining plans for 
addressing those recommendations that have not been adopted. 
The Committee notes the importance of continued collaboration 
amongst civilian and non-civilian Federal departments and 
agencies in understanding the burden of TBI amongst current and 
former military personnel and preventing and treating of these 
injuries.

Section 3. State grants for projects regarding Traumatic Brain Injury

    Section 3 would reauthorize State grants for projects 
regarding TBI and protection and advocacy services (sections 
1252 and 1253 of the PHSA) at the currently-appropriated level 
of $9.76 million for each of fiscal years 2014 through 2018.
    Section 3, along with provisions in section 4, also would 
remove the requirement that the Secretary of HHS make grants 
for projects regarding TBI and for protection and advocacy 
services through the HRSA Administrator and, instead, gives the 
Secretary discretion to move these authorities to another 
operating division within HHS. Since the last reauthorization 
of the TBI Program, HHS has created a new operating division--
the Administration for Community Living (ACL)--to oversee 
programs of services and supports for older Americans and 
people with disabilities, and maximize the ability of these 
individuals to reside at home and be active participants in 
their communities. The Committee believes the TBI authorities 
in sections 1252 and 1253 of the PHSA are very much consistent 
with ACL's mission and urges the Secretary of HHS to exercise 
her discretion to move these TBI programs to ACL.

Section 4. State grants for protection and advocacy services

    Section 4 would augment the existing reporting requirement 
for protection and advocacy systems. Under current law, 
grantees submit an annual report to the Secretary of HHS 
describing TBI services and activities conducted under section 
1253 of the PHSA. Section 4 requires the Secretary--in turn--to 
submit a one-time report to Congress one year after the date of 
enactment.
    As noted above, protection and advocacy services are 
reauthorized in section 3 of the legislation. Section 3 also 
would give the Secretary of HHS discretion to have protection 
and advocacy services authorized in section 1253 of the PHSA 
administered by another operating division within the 
Department. The Committee's expectation is that the Secretary 
of HHS will exercise her discretion and charge ACL with 
administration of this program, along with State TBI grants 
authorized in section 1252 of the PHSA.
