Senator Breslin: Lauren’s Law Passes the Senate / Bill Will Increase Likelihood of Life Saving Organ Donations

(Albany, NY) New York is one step closer to getting a boost in the number of life saving organ donors listed on the New York State Organ and Tissue Registry, Senator Neil D. Breslin (D-Delmar) has announced. The State Senate has passed Lauren’s Law, legislation (S.3885) making it mandatory for individuals who apply for a New York State Drivers License to complete the section of the application as it pertains to the organ donor registry.

Often overlooked now, this legislation requires applicants to check the box for either “yes” or “not at this time” under the organ donor registry section of the application. If an applicant forgets, which is often the case, a clerk will remind them of the need to complete that section of their application.
