Current Bill Summary

- Prepared by Senate Research -

HB 450 - Under current law, a donor may make an anatomical gift by authorizing a statement or symbol to be placed on the his or her driver's license or identification card and by filling out the form on the back of the card. This act requires such symbol or statement to be placed instead on the face of the card and permits a donor symbol sticker issued by the Department of Health and Senior Services to be placed on the back of the card. Additionally, the Department shall include on its website information about organ donation and a link for interested persons to register as an organ donor. If the donor does not have a donor symbol printed on his or her card, the Department shall mail the person a donor symbol sticker to be placed on the back of his or her card. All state agencies and departments may provide a link on their homepage directing the public to the organ donation information and registration page on the Department's website.
