Wisconsinites could soon have an easy way to display information about their end of life decisions.
Legislation being considered at the Capitol would give residents the option of having living will and power of attorney information printed on their driver's license. State Representative Amy Vruwink (D-Milladore) says it provides another opportunity for people to find out about living will options and to make their intentions clear about end of life decisions.
The information would be shown in a way that's similar to how organ donors are identified. Vruwink says it would only be available on Class D licenses.
The Department of Transportation opposes the bill. The agency's Rick Kleist says the main concern is that there's not enough space on the current driver's license design to print the information. Kleist says the change would also require more expensive card stock, more training for DMV employees, and could extend wait times at service centers.
