Free Driver's licenses to Organ Donors
By Scott "Bubba" DavisCandidate for Recall of Gray Davis; State of California

I would support a bill that waived the driver's license fee for signing up as an organ donor.Transplantation saves lives, but only if you help. All you need to do is say yes to organ and tissue donation on your donor card and/or driver's license and discuss your decision with your family.
Each day about 63 people receive an organ transplant, but another 16 people on the waiting list die because not enough organs are available.
Talk to your family members about organ and tissue donation so they know your wishes. Even if you've signed something, your family may be asked to give consent before donation can occur.
I would support giving a waiver of the driver's license fee to those who sign up as Organ Donors. This alone could save hundreds of lives a year.
