WE WON! SB 220 Defeated and Tabled

A big thanks to Bradley Williams and to everyone else 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!!!!
