The CCC is disappointed to report that SB 380, the bill extending physician-assisted suicide, passed out of the State Senate on Friday and is headed to the Assembly.
It is noteworthy that several Democrats refrained from voting for the bill, and all Republicans voted “No” or abstained. Thank you for your efforts in contacting Senators about the absurdity of the bill.
Please continue to look for alerts as the bill now makes its way through the Assembly. The fight to defeat this bill will take hard work and is far from over.
Lawmakers are currently focused on budget negotiations with the Governor. The Legislature must finalize a budget by the June 15 deadline or will permanently forfeit any reimbursement for salary and expenses for every day until a budget bill is passed.
