Earlier this afternoon, the Illinois Senate voted 34-18 with one voting present to pass SB 3076, a bill to amend the Illinois Department of Public Health Powers and Duties Law of the Civil Administrative Code to make the “Physician Orders For Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST)” form the advance directive to be honored in health care facilities.  Six state senators did not cast a vote at all.
