Missouri Lawmaker Pushing to Promote and Change State’s Organ Donation Program

Some changes in Missouri’s organ donation program may soon be made by the general assembly.

State Representative Dave Griffith of Jefferson City is working to advance House Bill 2680 through the 2022 session.

If it’s signed into law, it would allow the families of people who’ve donated organs to be recognized using Organ Donor Program funds.

It would also open the fund’s monetary contributions to accept any amount, not just the dollar when a Missourian is asked to contribute as they get or renew their driver’s license.

The Republican lawmaker says his brother was an organ donor and saved at least one woman’s life.
