Update: CO Death with Dignity bill dies in committee
Those supporting the proposed Death with Dignity law in Colorado will be disappointed to learn the bill failed yesterday to get out of the Committee on Public Health Care & Human Services. The Denver Post reported the bill was defeated on an 8-5 bipartisan vote. The official state website shows a motion to postpone the bill “indefinitely” passed 9-4 (click “Votes” the at the top of the page and then “HB15-1135”). An unofficial statewide poll had indicated voters supported the bill 68% to 28% with 4% undecided, didn’t know, or not sure.
