Euthanasia Bill Dead

SB 261, a bill that would have legalized assisted suicide and euthanasia, has died with the close of Nevada's legislative session. The bill passed the Senate in an 11 to 10 vote. The House Health Committee held a hearing, but took no action.

Thank you to everyone else who worked so hard to make this happen.
