Vt. House to debate end-of-life choices bill

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

The Vermont House will be debating end-of-life choice legislation that would potentially allow doctors to prescribe lethal medication to terminally ill patients who request it.

The measure has been the subject of two public hearings this year.

A stripped-down version of the bill already passed the Senate.

If it gains House approval Tuesday, it would be up for final action on Wednesday and then sent to a joint conference committee.
