Introduced  by  Sen.  RIVERA -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Health

AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation  to  definitions  and
  conforming  changes  pertaining  to  anatomical  gifts;  and to repeal
  certain provisions of such law relating thereto (Part A); to amend the
  public health law, in relation to changes in anatomical  gift  consent
  (Part  B);  and to amend the public health law, in relation to changes
  in anatomical gift revocation and amendment (Part C)

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative intent. The purpose of this legislation is to
enact changes to follow  the  Uniform  Anatomical  Gift  Act  (UAGA)  as
updated  in  2006 by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform
State Laws to enhance the  organ  donation  process.  Most  states  have
adopted  these  changes.  While New York has made recent improvements to
our organ donation rules and  participation  rates,  we  are  still  way
behind most states and, as a result, still face a severe organ shortage.
It  is  estimated that bringing New York's anatomical gift consent rules
into agreement with UAGA would produce an additional 100 donors - for  a
total of 200-300 additional organs available - over five years.
  §  2. This act enacts into law changes to the anatomical gift process.
Each component is wholly contained within a Part identified as  Parts  A
through  C.  The  effective date for each particular provision contained
within such Part is set forth in the last  section  of  such  Part.  Any
provision  in  any section contained within a Part, including the effec-
tive date of the Part, which makes a reference to  a  section  "of  this
act,"  when  used in connection with that particular component, shall be
deemed to mean and refer to the corresponding section  of  the  Part  in
which  it  is  found.  Section  three of this act sets forth the general
effective date of this act.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
