The California End of Life Option Act (EOLOA) went into effect on June 9th, 2016, authorizing the option of medical aid in dying for some terminally ill adults who wish to end their life peacefully with doctor prescribed medication. California Senate Bill 380, which shortened the waiting period from 15 days to 48 hours and extended the sunset provision to January 1, 3031, was signed by Governor Newsom on October 5, 2021. The bill went into effect on January 1, 2022.
