State Senate Passes Involuntary Medication Bill

DERBY - The Vermont State Senate has passed a controversial involuntary medication bill and sent it to the House Judiciary Committee. The mental health bill focuses on people in need of help but can’t be forced to take drugs and involuntarily commit them to a hospital. Representative Vicki Strong said she understands the bill’s intent, but has problems with the language. Please see The Newport Daily Express Wednesday for the complete story.
