Urge NYS Legislature to Pass A.10186 (Gunther)/S.8805(Breslin)
Since 2010, Donate Life NYS has partnered with the legislature to expand opportunities for New Yorkers to enroll in the NYS Donate Life Registry. The innovative ‘Doorways to Donation’ shown here have generated nearly one million enrollments to date.
We need your help to ensure the NYS Legislature continue this positive trajectory by passing the Doorways to Donation Act of 2022 (A.10186 Gunther/S.8805 Breslin). This legislation integrates the donor designation question into administrative processes by which individuals obtain, renew, and manage their health insurance coverage. Allowing New Yorkers to join the Registry during the process of enrolling in and managing their health insurance offers an ideal venue, as they are already considering healthcare options and choices.
Donate Life New York State is asking you to use the resources below and take the following steps (listed in order of priority) to make sure the voice of the donation community is heard:
