Podcast
Lawrence Mid Morning Show
With Eric Holcomb -- Weekdays 10a-12p 
Local Student Pushes for Legislation - And Gets It
Rosina Houle of Save A Life, Inc. (living kidney donor advocacy group) introduces us to 15-year-old Elliott Whisenant, who pushed this year for a change to Kansas law as it pertains to organ donation. Kansas House Representative Tom Sloan took note, and drafted HB 2472. Elliott presented and testified before members of both the Kansas House of Representatives and the Kansas Senate during this year's session, and his bill was approved unanimously in both chambers before being signed by the Governor.

 

Elliot talks with KLWN's Eric Holcomb and Jeremy Taylor about the process, what moved him into action, and what he hopes to accomplish in the future. He also provides full details of the bill, so we can know what to expect when the law takes effect later this year.
