Legislative Issues

ASTS advocates for Congress to pass new laws and change existing laws and for appropriations to legislation such as the Organ Donation and Recovery Improvement Act. ASTS and its members advocate for changes concerning transplantation for the benefit of patients and society. The ASTS Council, committees, and task forces work with legislative counsel to provide education and recommendations. ASTS also collaborates with the Transplant Roundtable, a group of 13 transplant-related organizations.
