New Jersey Action Alert! The Physician Assisted Suicide Bill is Back

Marie Tasy, Executive Director
New Jersey Right to Life

Senator Nicholas Scutari (D-22) reintroduced The Senate version of the Physician Assisted Suicide bill (S2474) on August 1, 2016. Senate President Steve Sweeney has stated his intention to sign on again as co-sponsor and lobby his fellow Senators to gain support for the bill. 

Assemblyman John Burzichelli (D-3) previously reintroduced the Assembly version (A2451) in February of this year. The text of the new bill, A2451/S2474, is now available on-line, and appears to be identical to the previous version. According to a recent Star Ledger article, proponents are pushing for action on the bill by the fall of 2016.
