Full Text of this Amendment

SA 2025. Mr. REID (for Mr. LEVIN) proposed an amendment to the bill H.R. 710, to provide that criminal penalties do not apply to paired donations of human kidneys, and for other purposes; as follows:

Strike all after the enacting clause and insert the following:
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the ``Charlie W. Norwood Living Organ Donation Act''.
SEC. 2. AMENDMENTS TO THE NATIONAL ORGAN TRANSPLANT ACT.
Section 301 of the National Organ Transplant Act (42 U.S.C. 274e) is amended--
(1) in subsection (a), by adding at the end the following: ``For purposes of this section, human organ paired donation and similar practices, as defined by the Secretary, shall not be considered to involve the transfer of a human organ for valuable consideration.''; and
(2) in subsection (c), by adding at the end the following:
``(4) The term `human organ paired donation' means the donation and receipt of human organs in a circumstance in which each of the following applies:
``(A) An individual (referred to in this paragraph as the `first donor') desires to make a living donation of a human organ specifically to a particular patient (referred to in this paragraph as the `first patient'), but such donor is biologically incompatible as a donor for such patient.
``(B) A second individual (referred to in this paragraph as the `second donor') desires to make a living donation of a human organ specifically to a second particular patient (referred to in this paragraph as the `second patient'), but such donor is biologically incompatible as a donor for such patient.
``(C) Subject to subparagraph (D), the first donor is biologically compatible as a donor of a human donor for the second patient, and the second donor is biologically compatible as a donor of a human organ for the first patient.
``(D) If there is any additional donor-patient pair as described in subparagraph (A) or (B), each donor in the group of donor-patient pairs is biologically compatible as a donor of a human organ for a patient in such group.
``(E) All donors and patients in the group of donor-patient pairs (whether 2 pairs or more than 2 pairs) enter into a single agreement to donate and receive such human organs, respectively, according to such biological compatibility in the group.
``(F) Other than as described in subparagraph (E), no valuable consideration is knowingly acquired, received, or otherwise transferred with respect to the human organs referred to in such subparagraph.''.
SEC. 3. REPORT.
Not later than 1 year after the date of enactment of this Act, and annually thereafter, the Secretary of Health and Human Services shall submit to the appropriate committees of Congress a report that details the progress made towards understanding the long-term health effects of living organ donation.
SEC. 4. NO IMPACT ON SOCIAL SECURITY TRUST FUND.
Nothing in this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) shall be construed to alter or amend the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 301 et seq.) (or any regulation promulgated under that Act).
(As printed in the Congressional Record for the Senate on Jul 9, 2007.)
