Virginia Assisted Suicide Bill Will Carry Over to 2025, Other Bills Dead

More good news from the east coast! Virginia bill SB 280, which had passed in the Senate, failed to move forward in the House – despite last ditch efforts – and will carry over to 2025. Many thanks to the Virginia coalition which did outstanding work to prevent passage.

In the meantime, the following bills are now declared dead for 2024 and will NOT carry over to the new year. 

Arizona: SB 1530, HB2878. 

Indiana: HB 1011

Iowa: HF533. Carried over from 2023. HF 612 and SF 2101 introduced in 2024. 

Maryland: HB 403, SB 443. Public hearings held, bills tabled due to lack of votes in committee.

Missouri: HB 1903. No activity took place.

Wisconsin: SB 739, AB 781. No activity took place.
