The assisted suicide bill was just voted out of the Health and Welfare Committee, with a 5-0 affirmative vote. The Bill reaches the Senate floor today and will then be sent to the Judiciary Committee for testimony next week.
It is not too late to stop this, but it is critical that everyone calls their Senators over the weekend. Let us know what they tell you by emailing [email protected]. Contact information is at http://www.leg.state.vt.us/legdir/districts.cfm?Body=S&Session=2014.
People are also urgently needed who can spend some time in the State House during the morning hours Wed – Friday. We need people especially from Franklin County, Bennington County, Addison County and Essex and Orleans Counties.
The word is that the bill will be voted on by February 13th or 14th.
