03/25/19 -- HB 450 -- Expands organ donation registry provisions

Bill Number: 
HB 450
Bill Purpose: 
Expands organ donation registry provisions
Date of Vote:

My Vote: 
Yes
Explanation: 

HB 450, introduced by Representative J. Eggleston (Republican - District 2) expands provisions related to the organ donation registry.  It allows people to register to become an organ donor via the Health and Senior Services website, and if they do so, be mailed a donor sticker to apply to their driver's license indicating their election.

This bill has minimal expense associated with it, and makes it substantially easier for people to register to become an organ donor.  Given that its something that most people only consider when they renew their driver's licenses, this is a major change in the right direction for the program, and I was pleased to vote "yes" on this.
