(Sacramento) -- Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) joined representatives from the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Donate Life program at a news conference to encourage everyone to sign up for the life saving organ donation program. Speaker Pérez says he's intimately familiar with the need for organ donation because his mother spent many years going through dialysis and, while spending time at the hospital with her, he met many people who benefited from organ donation. The Speaker says also realized the importance of organ donation when his father, who was an organ donor, died and he found solace in the fact others would be helped by his father even after his death. Here's more from the Speaker in this Assembly Access video.
