State House Committee Approves Legislation To Boost Donations To Organ Donation Trust Fund

A bill approved by the state House Transportation Committee would bolster efforts to convince more Pennsylvanians to become organ donors. The bill would increase from 1 to 3 dollars the amount Pennsylvanians can donate the Organ Donation Trust Fund when renewing a vehicle registration. Bill sponsor state Rep. Joe Petrarca says because it's now possible to renew a registration for two years, his bill would allow those who use that option to contribute up to 6 dollars to the organ fund.
