Governor Reynolds inks ‘Logan’s Law’

Lenny Luft says the legislative process helped family grieve loss of son

Charles City, Iowa – A bill named after a Charles City teen who died from sustaining brain injuries in a 2017 ATV accident has now become an Iowa law.

 

Governor Kim Reynolds signed SF 86, known as Logan’s Law, Monday morning allowing for persons to signify organ donation on hunting and fishing licenses.

The bill, which unanimously passed the House and Senate, is named after Logan Luft who donated five of his organs.

Reynolds, accompanied by Lieutenant Governor Adam Gregg, traveled to Charles City for the signing ceremony at Charles City Middle School – the same place where Logan’s celebration of life was.

She says today honored Logan’s Life through passing the organ donation bill.

 

Reynolds, who is an organ donor, says the law doesn’t restrict youth because of age from wanting to be donors.

 

Lenny Luft, Logan’s dad said allowing the bill to be tailored toward fishing and hunting is something Logan would’ve wanted.

 

Lenny added the year-long process became a learning curve, but most importantly allowed his family to grieve.

 

Representative Todd Prichard and Senator Waylon Brown campaigned on both sides of the house for passage and attended the ceremony.

Here’s audio from the signing ceremony:
