Call Speaker Ray Merrick Now!

Dear Friend,

In the first week of session, we saw Rep. Steven Becker and 16 other House Members introduce HB 2515, a bill to end the death penalty in Kansas. Last week, we saw those legislators, joined by Floyd Bledsoe and community leaders from across the state hold a press conference calling attention to HB 2515 and showing their support for ending the death penalty THIS YEAR!

 

This week it’s on us! We have to call Speaker Merrick’s office and strongly request he reassign HB 2515 to a committee that will let it be heard — specifically the Corrections and Juvenile Justice Committee. It is important that important public policy issues like the death penalty are fairly debated and discussed by the legislature. Without all of us reaching out and telling Speaker Merrick to do the right thing, we will not see repeal in 2016! Call him today! Call him tomorrow! Call him everyday until he let’s abolition get a fair hearing!

    Speaker Ray Merrick,

    Please reassign HB2515 to a committee that will let it be heard. Specifically the Corrections and Juvenile Justice Committee. I believe that with all the programs being cut because of budget shortages…the death penalty does not need to be funded when it is not used. More importantly…I do not believe that the death penalty is morally just. Please do all in your power to bring this issue to a just conclusion.
