Oregon State Legislature

Quinn Morrison - Wednesday, June 15, 2011

AMERA partnered with its membership in 2010 and lobbied the Oregon state legislature in 2010 and 2011 to require that all non-transplant tissue banks be regulated under the Oregon Department of Health and to register with the state in the same way that transplant banks are required. This work is ongoing and we will have updates as soon as possible on this year’s legislative cycle.
