Gov. Schwarzenegger Signs SB 1395

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger today issued the following statement after signing SB 1395 by Senator Elaine Alquist (D-Santa Clara):
Apple CEO Steve Jobs, Packard Children's CEO Christopher Dawes, state Sen. Elaine Alquist, and Dean Philip Pizzo, MD, among others, were in attendance. * Steve Jobs received a liver transplant in 2009.
“Organ donors are true heroes and I’m proud to sign SB 1395. This legislation will help save the lives of those waiting for a transplant by making it easier for Californians to affirm their preferred organ donor status. It will also create the nation’s first donor registry for kidney transplants to help connect those in need of a transplant with those willing to give. I applaud all of those who were involved in passing this life-saving legislation.”
