(UNDATED) - A new state law allows 16-year-olds to donate blood with parental consent as of July 1st.
Shelby Norris with the American Red Cross says the age restriction has been a fuzzy issue in the state.
She says in the past, the Red Cross and other blood centers have allowed 16-year-olds to donate blood with parental consent anyway.
The Red Cross holds blood drives in high schools to get teens into the habit of donating blood regularly.
But the 17-year-old age restriction limited participation.
