CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Sens. Kelly Ayotte and Jeanne Shaheen say a bill on its way to President Barack Obama will enhance treatment services for veterans living with traumatic brain injuries.

The senators introduced legislation that would modify a pilot program created in 2008 to place veterans with these severe injuries in residential living programs. About 200 veterans have participated in the program, including a number of New Hampshire veterans who were treated at Robin Hill Farm, a community-based center in Hillsboro that provides brain injury rehabilitation services.

Ayotte and Shaheen said the bill clarifies the category of services provided, improves rehabilitation providers’ participation and boosts transparency and accountability.
