Gleason, an organ recipient, applauds legislation and plate

Senator John Gleason (D-Flushing) applauded the passage of legislation that would create a charitable Gift of Life license plate. Similar to other fundraising plates, this plate would collect funds for the administration and maintenance of the registry program.

Gleason, the recipient of a kidney transplant in 2001, has long been a promoter of organ and tissue donation.

 Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer offered an amendment to have the act named as the John J. Gleason Gift of Life Plate. "For the decade since his transplant, John has been an outspoken supporter for organ donation awareness," said Whitmer. "He has impacted thousands of lives through his work to signify organ donation on driver's licenses and include organ donation to the driver's education curriculum."
