Vt. Senate to vote on ‘right to die’ bill

Posted: Updated:

VERMONT -- The Vermont Senate will vote Tuesday on legislation that supporters call "end-of-life choices" and critics call "physician-assisted suicide."

The question is will they follow a recommendation of the senate judiciary committee to reject the measure.

The judiciary committee came out against the right to die legislation a week after the health and welfare committee voted unanimously to support it.

If the measure clears the senate tomorrow, it still would need action in the Vermont House.

Both the house leadership and Governor Peter Shumlin have expressed support for the bill.
