This bill would change the statutory dedication of a portion of revenue from fines and penalties form motor vehicle violations to provide funding, currently dedicated to the "New Jersey Brain Injury Research Fund," to fund certain community services related to brain injury. Current law provides for several additional charges added to fines and penalties for motor vehicle violations and other traffic violations. One of these charges provides approximately $4 million annually in dedicated funding for the New Jersey Brain Injury Research Fund, which supports grants for brain injury research projects at qualified research institutions approved by the New Jersey State Commission on Brain Injury Research. This bill would dedicate the first $140,000 in revenue, which would otherwise be deposited in the New Jersey Brain Injury Research Fund, to the Department of Human Services in order to fund community and other services provided by the Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey to those affected by traumatic brain injury. This would allow the department to reinstate a contract with the Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey that was terminated in February 2014. This dedication of funding would apply only for fiscal years 2015, 2016, and 2017.
