Lawmakers Grapple With Death, Licenses
With some still saying they may wrap up their business for the year by Saturday, Vermont lawmakers have a heavy agenda set for Tuesday.
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 House gave that measure preliminary approval on Monday. It's already passed the Senate.
