JEFFERSON CITY — Some Missouri lawmakers are looking to pump up the financial donations for the state's organ donor registry.
The donor registry is funded largely by $1 contributions made by people getting a driver's license or vehicle registration.
In 1999, the registry received more than $400,000. But contributions had fallen a little more than $140,000 last year.
Legislation pending before a House committee seeks to boost contributions by adding the organ donor registry as a check-off option on state income tax forms. Missouri already has 20 other tax form choices for contributions.
