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.
