In a ceremony intended as a commemoration of California’s SB 1395 Apple Co-Founder & CEO Steve Jobs and California State’s Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger posed for photos to mark the signing of the transplant bill into law. Jobs and Schwarzenegger were at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in Standford for the activity.
Steve Jobs has got a liver transplantation in 2009. He registered himself as a candidate for liver transplantation. Previously Jobs remarked that 400 Californians died waiting for the organs to be denoted to them in 2009.
“Organ donors are true heroes and Iím proud to sign SB 1395. This legislation will help save the lives of those waiting for a transplant by making it easier for Californians to affirm their preferred organ donor status. It will also create the nationís first donor registry for kidney transplants to help connect those in need of a transplant with those willing to give. I applaud all of those who were involved in passing this life-saving legislation.”
Governor California State Arnold Schwarzenegger and Senator Elaine Alquist introduced the legislation of SB 1395 back in March.
The act gave Californians to either become a donor or not to be a donor by considering at another time. The legislation helps to make a connection between the donors and the people waiting for the organs.
