Please review and distribute as appropriate.
This is notification of the provisions of Senate Bill 1803 enacted by the 81st Legislature, Regular Session. Senate Bill 1803 amends the Transportation Code by adding a new Section 502.189, requiring TxDOT to provide a method to distribute organ donor registry information to individuals registering their vehicles online, by mail and in-person.
In the coming months, TxDOT will feature the following Donate Life Texas logo (PDF attached) and the statement "More than 7000 Texans are hoping you*ll become an organ donor. Learn how at www.donatelifetexas.org. " This will appear on:
* Texas Online www.texasonline.com on the final registration screen,
* TXIRP online www.txdot.gov/business/motor_carrier/interstate_carriers/apportioned_reg.htm on the final registration screen, and
* the reverse side of the motor vehicle registration renewal notice
In a later Listserv we will provide information on how to order *Donate Life* brochures and posters from the Department of State Health Services (DSHS). that can be distributed or displayed through your offices.
