Des Moines, Iowa – Wednesday was Organ Donor Awareness Day at the Iowa Capitol and Senators used the occasion to unanimously pass a proposal called “Logan’s Law.” It would let Iowans put a symbol on their hunting and fishing licenses indicating they wish to be an organ donor.
It’s named after Logan Luft, a 15-year-old from Charles City who died in an ATV accident.
Senator Waylon Brown says because Logan expressed his interest in organ donation, he ultimately gave the gift of life to others.
Senator Pam Jochum of Dubuque welcomed Logan’s family to the senate.
Wendy Luft and her husband were on the Senate floor as the bill was debated and passed unanimously.
Luft’s siblings, other relatives and a couple of teenage friends from Charles City made the trip to Des Moines for the senate debate.
Alex Staudt says Logan’s legacy is helping spread the word about the importance of being an organ donor.
Linking organ donation intentions to hunting and fishing licenses is a great way to honor Logan according to Antwone Cooper.
The bill Logan Luft’s family and friends are lobbying for has been introduced in the House, but no action has been scheduled on it there.
