Senator Carlucci, Lauren Shields Join in New Push to Allow Not-for-Profits to Administer Donate Life Registry in New York

On Heels of ‘Lauren’s Law’, Latest Effort will Promote Even Greater Enrollment, Streamline Registration Process

ALBANY, NY – Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Westchester) today welcomed back organ donor champion Lauren Shields and advocacy groups to Albany in their latest effort to pass a sweeping overhaul of how the organ donation process is administered in New York State. In arguing for greater control over the Donate Life Registry for organ, eye, and tissue donation, advocates insist that legislators should support current legislation that would turn over its operation and promotion of the Donate Life Registry to a not-for-profit statewide organization that has experience working in organ donation. In doing so, this would continue a nationwide trend of other states that already have made the appropriate transition in contracting out these services.
