Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Uniform  Anatomical  Gift  Act.   Provides  that  no      
   hospital,  physician and surgeon, bank or storage facility,  or  other      
   person  shall  determine  the ultimate recipient of an anatomical gift      
   based upon a potential  recipient's  physical  or  mental  disability,      
   except in cases where the physical or mental disability has been found      
   by  a  physician  and  surgeon  to  be  medically  significant  to the      
   provision of the anatomical gift.  Provides that  the  person  with  a      
   physical  or  mental  disability  shall not be required to demonstrate      
   postoperative independent living abilities in order to have access  to      
   a   transplant  if  there  is  evidence  that  the  person  will  have      
   sufficient, compensatory support and assistance.   Provides  that  the      
   court  shall  accord priority on its calendar and handle expeditiously      
   any action brought to seek any remedy authorized by law  for  purposes      
   of   enforcing   compliance  with  these  provisions  and  that  these      
   provisions shall not be deemed to require the performance of medically      
   inappropriate organ transplants.
