Connecticut assisted suicide Bill HB 5326 is dead.

The Hartford Courant reported that the Connecticut assisted suicide Bill HB 5326 will not go to a vote this year. Kevin Rennie, lawyer and former Connecticut legislator stated in the Hartford Courant:
Meanwhile, the assisted suicide bill was killed in the legislature last week. This was for the best. By raising the profile of the issue early now, it ought to get more attention in the coming campaigns for governor and the legislature. The broader public ought to be heard on the proposal. This is not a change in the law that should be adopted without prolonged, statewide debate.
March was a great month for those who work to protect people from assisted suicide. 

On March 19 we learned that the Massachusetts assisted suicide Bill 1998 was being sent to a study committee, meaning that it would not go to a vote this year.
