Senate Judiciary and Labor Passes Assisted Suicide Bill Out of Committee
From Hawaii Family Advocates February 28, 2017
Today, Tuesday February 28, 2017, the Senate Judiciary & Labor Committee passed the assisted suicide bill (SB1129 SD2) out of committee. The newly amended version is not available for review at this time.
The committee voted unanimously to pass the bill out of committee with Senator(s) Keith-Agaran, Rhoads, and Thielen voting yes on the bill. Senator Kim voted yes with reservations. The final committee member, Senator Gabbard was excused and did not vote on the bill at this time.
The bill will now move to the full Senate floor for a vote. Once the bill is scheduled for this floor vote, we will let you know.
