Kentucky legislature proposes bill to expand opportunities to register as an organ donor

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky residents could have more opportunities to register as an organ donor. Kentucky will soon move to an eight-year cycle for renewing driver’s licenses. That means fewer people will be visiting circuit court clerk offices each year, which is the primary way people sign up to be organ donors. A bill approved by a state Senate committee on Wednesday would let people register as an organ donor when they log in to the Kentucky Online Gateway, a website to use state services.
