Free driver's licenses for registered organ donors

A bill introduced in the Vermont legislature would waive the $10 annual driver's license fee for anyone who registered to donate their organs when they die, according to an article in the Burlington Free Press.

This is a great idea. The state of Georgia used to offer discounted driver's licenses to registered organ donors, and it had a significant positive impact in donor registration rates. The discount program was ended after a few years, supposedly for budgetary reasons. See our previous post on this.
