LI TRIO Update:
Regarding Legislative Initiatives and Metrics thanks to Our Most Recent 18 Month Effort and The Support of Volunteers; Our Volunteers and Other Volunteers.
Governor Andrew Cuomo today announced that, in just one week, 6,326 New Yorkers have consented to enroll in the New York State Donate Life Registry via NY State of Health, as of April 27.
As reported on www.litrio.org, Governor Cuomo announced this new registration option last week aimed at increasing organ donor registration across the country.
Governor Cuomo signed the legislation last year and that legislation required NY State of Health to add the organ donation component to its health insurance application.
Individuals 16 years of age or older who are completing an application, renewing a plan, or making a life status change are now asked if they would like to be added to the NYS Donate Life Registry.
