Vermont is just one final step away from eliminating the residency requirement from our medical-aid-in-dying law, Act 39.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to members of the Vermont Senate who overwhelmingly passed H.190 yesterday. In particular, our thanks go out to Senator Ginny Lyons, Chair of the Senate Health and Welfare Committee, and the committee members who carefully considered this bill.
We are pleased to report that the Vermont Senate Committee on Health and Welfare voted on Thursday, April 14, 2023 to recommend House Bill 190, which would remove the residency requirement from our medical-aid-in-dying law, Act 39. The bill now goes to the full Senate for a vote.
