New York helped by spinal cord injury research

Francesco Clark of BronxvilleIn 1998, Paul Richter, a state trooper who was shot in the line of duty, and the late Christopher Reeve helped create the Spinal Cord Injury Research Program in New York State. The legislation levied a surcharge on speeding tickets — half of people with spinal cord injury are hurt in motor vehicle accidents — to create a trust fund for spinal cord injury research. The trust was the first of its kind in the country, and has been emulated by numerous other states. The ticket surcharge generates tens of millions of dollars annually; $8.5 million is supposed to be devoted to spinal cord injury research. But since 2010, that money has been swept into the general fund. We call on state legislators to put the money back where it belongs — into spinal cord injury research.
