Death Penalty In Limbo, Sen. Pres. Calls For Action

January 5, 2011

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller said this morning that he will call for a committee vote on death penalty regulations that have been in limbo for more than a year, effectively giving the state a moratorium on capital punishment.
Earlier this week, Sen. Paul Pinsky, a Prince George’s County Democrat and death penalty opponent, told WBAL’s Robert Lang that his administrative panel of senators and delegates needs more time to review regulations that were rewritten by the prison system after being struck down in 2006 by the state’s highest court.
Pinsky told WBAL that there are unanswered questions about the lethal injection procedure including, ” the mixture of the (lethal injection) chemicals and assurances that (the chemicals) would do what it is intended to do.”
