Provides that the Department may provide summary reports of aggregated data as determined by the Department, and that the summary reports are not exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act. Provides that the Department may (instead of shall) designate the next institution to receive a cadaver when requested from (instead of by) a State facility.
