Status (cverview) of bill:https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2017R1/Measures/Overview/SB744


This bill directs Oregon Health Authority to provide information to patients between the ages of 18 and 44 about donating bone marrow.

Personal Choice and Responsibility
This is unnecessary encroachment by government that targets a youthful sector with no reason given for that stipulation. No recognition of information relating donor inconveniences.

Fiscal Responsibility
New process added to Oregon Health Authority with issue of funding being a possible rejection of the implementation.

Limited Government
There is no need of this bill. Private sources would be much more efficient and fair in the distribution of such information.

Local Control
Through SB 744, government imposes irresponsible mandates.

Free Markets
Over-burdensome regulation. Overstepping government authority.
