Death penalty restrictions considered
(NET Radio) - A proposed repeal of the death penalty failed to advance by only one vote last week. So the Judiciary Committee is proposing a bill designed to appeal to some of the senators who opposed the repeal. The new proposal would say the death penalty could not be imposed unless a court found that someone poses a present and substantial risk to the lives of others that cannot reasonably and effectively be controlled by imprisonment. © Copyright 2017, NET Radio
