Abolition Bill – HB 2129

Abolition Bill – HB 2129
(For more information contact: Mary Sloan, Executive Director)

 

On Tuesday, January 27, 2015, HB 2129 to repeal the death penalty and replace it with life without parole was introduced by Representative Steven Becker of Buhler. Since then, we have had a Lobby Day (thanks to all who were able to come and make this day such a success!) and the Faith Leaders’ Press Conference. Those events have made a difference and raised awareness and gained wide media coverage.

 

Now our task is to keep up the call for repeal. Please continue to contact your legislators and ask them to support HB 2129! It’s important for legislators to hear from you. The bill is in the House Judiciary Committee awaiting a hearing. The committee is chaired by Rep. John Barker. His email address is johndotbarkerathousedotksdotgov.

 

Call, write or email your legislators and Chairman Barker today and tell them you support ending the Kansas death penalty! Keep reminding them that death penalty cases cost three to four times more than non-death penalty cases. The high cost of the death penalty diverts important financial resources from other uses.

 

To confirm your legislators’ contact information, just visit www.openstates.org. Type in your address to see contact information for your Senator and Representative.

 

If you have questions, need assistance, or want to share your legislator’s response, please contact KCADP at 785-235-2237 or infoatksabolitiondotorg.

 

Thanks!
