Update on the Innocence Protection Act

Great news from Mark Agrast, the chair of the ABA Section of Individual Rights and Responsibilities and Counsel and Legislative Director to Rep. William D. Delahunt (D-MA):

As the House of Representatives completed its business for the year, Congressman Bill Delahunt and Congressman Ray LaHood announced that the Innocence Protection Act had reached a new milestone of 250 House cosponsors. Adding their support to the bill were:

Representative Bart Gordon of Tennessee
Representative Rob Andrews of New Jersey
Representative Adam Schiff of California
Representative Stephen F. Lynch of Massachusetts

The complete list of cosponsors appears below.

We are immensely grateful to our House and Senate cosponsors and to all those who have worked so hard to build support for the bill. While we did not cross the finish line during the session just ending, we look forward to working with you as we renew our efforts in January.
