Dutton's Moratorium Bill on agenda for Committee Hearing next Thursday, April 2

Rep Dutton’s moratorium bill (HB 913) is on the agenda for next Thursday, April 2, in the Subcommittee on Capital Punishment. We need to make an effort for this bill. If at all possible, people should try to drop to the hearing and sign a form in favor of this bill, which would actually stop executions for two years and create a death penalty study commission. It only takes a few minutes to fill out the form in favor and then leave, but you have to turn in the form in person.

Also contact the capital punishment subcommittee members and tell them you support HB 913.

Please forward this message.
