The AP (12/17, Neergaard) reports the administration “proposed new rules Tuesday to increase organ transplants – steps to make it easier for the living to donate and to make sure that organs from the deceased don’t go to waste.” The article outlines the proposed rules that would increase potential reimbursement for donors and hold “organ procurement organizations” to higher standards.

The Hill (12/17, Sullivan) reports HHS “said that 20 people die each day while on the waitlist for a life-saving organ transplant, and that the new rules are intended to reduce that number and save lives.”
