License Symbol For Donors Available

FRANKFORT (AP) - Kentuckians who want to become organ donors can have their wishes known with a special symbol on their licenses or ID cards that also adds their name to the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

The option became available Tuesday.

In the past, Kentuckians using a license or ID card to show they want to be organ donors could only do so by signing a statement on the back along with two witnesses. While that option is still available, it does not add the person's name to the registry.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said in a news release that joining the registry is a more definitive step because a license or ID may not be available at the time of death.
