CORNING (WENY)---Assemblyman Phil Palmesano announced Tuesday the passage of 'Lauren's Law'

Under the measure, all driver's license applications would need to include organ donor information.

In 2009- New York ranked last in the country for the number of new donors.

Lauren's law is named after Lauren Shields.  A 12-year-old from Rockland County who received a heart transplant in 2009.
