Death Penalty Repeal Passes Senate

Following a lengthy debate, the state senate voted 19-17 to repeal the death penalty. The House had passed the repeal last week.

The bill now goes to the governor, who has often reiterated her support for the death penalty. I suspect that she’ll veto it, but you never know, the governor has been known to surprise us on big issues like this.
