The “End of Life Option Act” Introduced in the California Senate

Today California Senate Bill SB 128 was introduced.  It is described in the press as being comparable to Oregon’s law. 

Its status can be followed here.  Apparently (I am betraying my weak knowledge of the civics of my home state here) it is first referred to the California Senate Rules Committee for committee assignment.   

I have just downloaded the text and have not studied it in detail.  Frankly, given what I have been writing about physician-assisted suicide, I don’t think I will find any surprises in it.  But I will track it and report further on it in upcoming posts.
