65-3239. Establishing a statewide donor registry; requirements; first person consent organ and tissue donor registry. (a) Information obtained under K.S.A. 8-247 and 8-1325, and amendments thereto, from the division of vehicles by the Kansas federally designated organ procurement organization shall be used for the purpose of establishing a statewide organ and tissue donor registry accessible to in-state recognized cadaveric organ and cadaveric tissue agencies for the recovery or placement of organs and tissue and to procurement agencies in another state when a Kansas resident is a donor of an anatomical gift and is not located in Kansas at the time of death or immediately before the death of the donor. No organ or tissue donation organization may obtain information from the organ and tissue donor registry for the purposes of fund-raising. Organ and tissue donor registry information shall not be further disseminated unless authorized in this section or by federal law. Dissemination of organ and tissue donor registry information may be made by the Kansas federally designated organ procurement organization to a recognized in-state procurement agency for other tissue recovery, or an out-of-state federally designated organ procurement agency. An individual who agrees to have such individual's name in the first person consent organ and tissue donor registry has given full legal consent to the donation of any of such individual's organs or tissues upon such individual's death as recorded in the registry.

(b) The Kansas federally designated organ procurement organization may acquire donor information from sources other than the division of vehicles.

(c) All costs associated with the creation and maintenance of the organ and tissue donor registry shall be paid by the Kansas federally designated organ procurement organization. Such organization shall also pay the costs of providing and maintaining the written information and educational materials required to be distributed under subsection (g) of K.S.A. 8-247, and amendments thereto, and under subsection (b) of K.S.A. 8-1325, and amendments thereto.

(d) An individual does not need to participate in the organ and tissue donor registry to be a donor of organs or tissue. The registry is to facilitate organ and tissue donations and not inhibit Kansans from being donors upon death.

(e) This section shall be a part of and supplemental to the revised uniform anatomical gift act.

History: L. 2002, ch. 60, § 1; L. 2007, ch. 127, § 32; L. 2010, ch. 141, § 2; July 1.
