Assemblymember Eggman’s End of Life Option Act Wins Historic Vote, Passes State Assembly

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

(Sacramento) – A bill, authored by Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton), to allow terminally-ill Californians to request a doctor’s prescription for medication to aid in dying passed a significant hurdle when it was approved by the State Assembly. “This issue is of immense importance to all Californians, and I was confident that the full Assembly, reflective of and responsive to the people it represents, would do the right thing and move us closer to making it possible for terminally-ill Californians to decide for themselves how to manage their last days,” Assemblymember Eggman said.
