Connecticut Assisted Suicide bill dies.

The Connecticut Post is reporting that the bill to legalize assisted suicide will not be considered in this legislative session. The article stated:
The legislature's Public Health Committee faced a Friday deadline to vote on the bill. Supporters said they removed it from the agenda to avoid lengthy discussion or filibuster that could jeopardize other vital bills. 
The panel had until the end of the day to forward any legislation to the House or Senate for further consideration.
Senator Ed Meyer, who proposed the bill, explained that pulling the assisted suicide bill was a legislative timing issue, but the reality shows that they had a hard time getting the support that they needed to get it passed.

Supporters said they would reintroduce the bill in the next legislative session.

We hope that the Vermont assisted suicide bill  S 77 dies next.
