A big thanks to everyone who worked so hard to defeat SB 220, which had sought to legalize Oregon-style assisted suicide in Montana!
Yesterday, February 13, 2013, the bill was defeated and then tabled in the Senate Judiciary Committee's executive session.
The vote to defeat SB 220 was 7 to 5.
The vote to table the bill was 9 to 3.
Way to go!!!!
