This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.
Prepared by: Health Policy Committee (HP)
This bill reenacts the public records exemption for the Joshua Abbott Organ and Tissue Donor Registry.
The Joshua Abbott Organ and Tissue Donor Registry is an interactive web-based organ and tissue donor registry that allows for online organ donor registration. The public records exemption makes information that identifies a donor confidential and exempt from public records requirements except that such information may be disclosed under specified circumstances. The public records exemption was subject to review under the Open Government Sunset Review Act and would have been automatically repealed on October 2, 2013.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect October 1, 2013.
Vote: Senate 40-0; House 117-0
