The New Jersey "Death with Dignity" Act, also known as Assembly Bill 3328, did not make the November 5, 2013 ballot in the state of New Jersey as a legislatively-referred state statute. The measure would have allowed terminally ill citizens with six months or less to live to end their lives through a lethal dose of medication. The measure was introduced during the 2013 state legislative session. The bill was authored by State Assemblymen John Burzichelli and Timothy Eustace. The New Jersey legislature meets year round, so it is more difficult to determine when a vote on the measure will be held.[1]

Path to the ballot

On February 10, 2013, the Health and Senior Services Committee voted 7-2 to send the measure to the state House and Senate. If the measure had been approved by both chambers, the measure would have been placed on the ballot.[1]
