The bill would require DPS to include space on each application for a new or renewal driver's license or personal identification certificate that informs the applicant of the existence of the National Marrow Donor Program, the contact information for the program, and a description of the program's purpose. It is assumed the provisions of the bill could be implemented using existing resources.
The bill would take effect September 1, 2017.
