Vt. Lawmakers To Grapple With Death, Licenses

May 7, 2013

Vermont lawmakers have a heavy agenda set for today.

On the Senate's calendar is a bill that would allow Vermont doctors to prescribe lethal medications to terminally ill patients who request it. Two sharply different bills have passed the House and the Senate previously. Up for debate in the Senate is whether to concur with the House version.

The House, meanwhile, is to take up final approval of a bill that would grant a new sort of Vermont driver's license called a driver's privilege card to guest workers who can't prove they're in the country legally.

The Vermont Senate has voted to raise $9.4 million in new revenues to support a $1.3 billion general fund budget, in part by capping the deduction that homeowners can take from their state income taxes for mortgage interest.

The Vermont Senate is supporting a state board's ruling that pets don't belong in barber shops and beauty parlors.

The Vermont Senate has pulled back somewhat on a gasoline tax increase passed by the House, but has made up for that by increasing the diesel tax.

WAMC/Pat Bradley

The Vermont Senate has advanced legislation aimed at allowing workers on Vermont farms to become legal drivers despite the fact that they may be in the country illegally.

WAMC

The Vermont Senate is expected to take up a bill that would allow immigrant farm workers to get driver's licenses in Vermont.

The Vermont Senate moved a controversial energy bill forward Tuesday after removing most of the provisions causing problems.

The Vermont Senate has passed a physician-assisted suicide bill and moved it to the House chamber.  But the amended bill is substantially different than the original bill presented to lawmakers.

The Vermont Senate passed the “Patient Choice and Control at End of Life” bill late Thursday. It grants immunity from criminal or civil liability to health care professionals and family members when treating or helping a terminally ill patient who decides to end their own life.

The Vermont Senate has given preliminary approval to a bill that calls on public employees who don't join their union to pay the union an agency fee for representing them in collective bargaining.

MacGovern for U.S. Senate

Republican U.S. Senate candidate John MacGovern knows his effort to unseat Vermont's independent U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders is a long shot, but he's pushing forward, hoping an unexpected confluence of events could send him to Washington.

The 61-year-old Windsor man has only a tiny fraction of the $6.8 million that Sanders has available. He's had no official support from the national or state Republican parties and little name recognition.
