Assisted Suicide Bill Now in Senate

On Tuesday, March 6, 2018, HB2739 HD1 passed the House by a 39-12 vote. The only no votes were:  Representative(s) Aquino, Cachola, Choy, Cullen, Har, Johanson, Kong, McDermott, Quinlan, Tupola, Ward, Woodson.

You can watch the floor vote and discussion here.  Fast forward the floor votes to about 2:01:31 for the full vote and floor speeches on the measure.

The bill has been assigned to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection & Health and then it will move to the Senate Judiciary.

First Crossover: It All Begins All Over Again

Thursday, March 8, 2018 was the deadline for bills to pass third reading in order to move (or "crossover") to the other chamber. If successful, House bills are sent to the Senate and Senate bills are sent to the House for further consideration. 

That means that bills still alive, keep their numbers, but go through the cycle all over again.  Bills are currently being assigned to the committees that will hear them.

Upcoming Legislative Calendar

This deadline allows ample time for successful bills to make their way to their last committee by the Second Lateral deadline.
