Organ Donation Bill Signed By Christie [VIDEO]

Tim Larsen, Governor's Office

Governor Chris Christie signed a bill into law today, establishing every April in New Jersey as Donate Life Month.

The measure requires that the atate disseminate organ and tissue donation information to all state employees during the month of April, reminding them of the need for organ donors. Additionally, the law directs the Department of Treasury to encourage all businesses with contracts with the state to notify their employees of organ donation options through information and materials or through an awareness program.

“Establishing Donate Life Month is an opportunity for all residents to learn more about the critical importance of registering to become an organ donor,” said Governor Christie. “By going through the simple process of becoming an organ donor, just one person can make a difference in as many as 50 lives.”

Nationally, there are more than 111,000 people waiting to receive a life-saving organ transplant. Every 10 minutes another name is added to the waiting list.
