- The Vermont legislature will hold its next vote on Wednesday on a bill that would make the state the third to legalize assisted suicide, following Oregon and Washington. Days ago, the Senate Health & Welfare Committee unanimously approved a bill despite hearing from opponents of it.
- The vote in the Health & Welfare Committee was expected and it sent the bill to the Senate Judiciary Committee, where it will have a less hearty reception observers say. That committee is expected to send the bill with an unfavorable recommendation to the full Senate.
