State police are warning drivers of black ice this morning. Authorities say accumulating ice and slush has made roads dangerous in the Franklin County area and that black ice is a danger in Chittenden County. The Vermont Senate today/Tuesday is turning to end-of-life choices. Senators will debate a bill that would give patients with less than six months to live the choice to end their lives with doctor-prescribed drugs.
