In the age of Super PACs, the Vermont House wants to prohibit big contributions to political action groups. The House passed legislation Wednesday that would cap donations to “Super PACs.” Supporters hope a last-minute compromise means a bill that would allow terminally ill patients to get doctors’ help to end their lives will become law.
