HB 153: Business Tax Credit for Paid Organ Donation Leave

H.B. 153, P.N. 153 (GODSHALL) This would create the Organ and Bone Marrow Donor Act.
The Health Department would create a public information and education program concerning the need and benefits of bone marrow donation.
A business firm may offer a paid leave of absence for donating an organ or bone marrow, with no loss of rights with respect to such leave. A business firm that provides such leave would receive a tax credit equal to the amount of employee leave paid during such leave. An unused such tax credit may be carried forth for three taxable years.
