GOVERNOR PATRICK SIGNS BILL TO STREAMLINE AND PROMOTE ORGAN DONATION PROCESS IN MASSACHUSETTS

The Melrose News

BOSTON – Wednesday, February 22, 2012 – Governor Deval Patrick today signed S. 2067, “An Act Relative to a Uniform Anatomical Gift Act,” legislation that will promote organ donation by updating Massachusetts’ Uniform Anatomical Gift Act (UAGA). The legislation is an important step to increase organ donations by aligning state statute with requirements currently in effect in neighboring states.

“We know the critically important role that organ donation plays in saving lives,” said Governor Patrick. “I am proud to sign this bill that will promote the idea of organ donation and remove barriers to allow more people to become organ donors.”
