AID IN DYING BILL TEED UP FOR SEPT. 26 HEARING

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, SEPT. 13, 2017....The controversial issue of medical aid in dying will be the subject of a Public Health Committee hearing later this month as activists pursue additional end-of-life options through both the Legislature and the courts.

The Joint Committee on Public Health announced Wednesday that its hearing on Sept. 26 will be devoted to the issue, with only one piece of legislation on the agenda for that day -- H 1194/S 1225 filed by Rep. Louis Kafka and Sen. Barbara L'Italien.

It appears the committee is expecting the hearing will attract many observers because the committee has scheduled its hearing for two adjacent hearing rooms.
