Congress Considering Federal Death Penalty Expansion
Conference Committee Decision Imminent -- Act Now!
Congress is currently considering legislation that would expand the federal death penalty - again! Although the 9/11 Commission's report did not recommend any further extension of the death penalty, the House of Representatives' "9/11 Commission Recommendations Implementation Act" exploits this national tragedy with eight new provisions to broaden the federal death penalty.
This bill, H.R. 10, has already passed the House and will be considered in conference with Senate legislation that contains no death penalty expansion. Within the next few days, the bills will be reconciled -- please write the conferees right away and tell them to drop the wasteful and counterproductive death penalty provisions from the bill!
