ALBANY, NY (WENY)– During New York’s last week of legislative session, some advocates travel to Albany to urge state lawmakers to pass a bill that would legalize medical aid in dying.
A few weeks ago, Assembly Member Amy Paulin (D-Assembly District 88) who has carried this bill for eight years, said she didn’t think it was going to go through. Tuesday, she said the bill has gained momentum.
“I believe when this bill comes to the floor, it will pass the Assembly with resounding numbers,” she said.
This bill is one of hundreds that could pass this week as session comes to a close.
