Due to the amazing turnout of concerned Kansans at today’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on two death penalty related bills, the hearing has been EXTENDED and will CONTINUE on Tuesday, January 21, 2014. The continuation of this hearing will take place at 10:30am in Room 346-S in the capitol building and is open to the public! The hearing today was on Senate Bill 126 – Abolishing the death penarly: creating crime of aggravated murder and SB257 – Review and appeal of convictions resulting in a sentence of death.
