State   |   Marie Tasy   |   Dec 10, 2014   |   12:03PM   |   Trenton, NJ

The Senate Health Committee has decided to hold a second hearing on Monday, December 15 at 11 a.m. on A2270/S382, the physician assisted suicide bill. At this time, it is not clear whether testimony will be limited to only invited guests as it was for yesterday’s hearing. It does appear that a vote will take a place at the end of this hearing which will determine whether the bill will be released from committee or not.
At this time, it is critical that you do the following:
