Senate To Vote On End Of Life Bill

Print More

The Vermont Senate is gearing up for a vote on legislation that supporters call "death with dignity" and critics call "physician-assisted suicide."

The Senate is set to vote tomorrow whether to follow a recommendation of the Senate Judiciary Committee to reject the measure.

The Judiciary Committee on Friday came out against the legislation a week after the Health and Welfare Committee voted unanimously to support it.

If the measure clears the Senate, it still would need action in the Vermont House. Both the House leadership and Governor Peter Shumlin have expressed support for the bill.
