Legislative subcommittee does not object to Kentucky’s revised execution protocols

KCADP believes Attorney General Jack Conway, also a candidate for the U.S. Senate, will request that Gov. Steve Beshear sign death warrants for at least three inmates.

KCADP believes Attorney General Jack Conway will request that Gov. Steve Beshear sign death warrants for at least three inmates.

The Administrative Regulations Review (AAR) Subcommittee of the General Assembly did not object to the proposed regulations that the Kentucky Department of Corrections (DOC) prepared on the two Kentucky execution methods: electrocution and lethal injection.

While there are some other perfunctory hoops the DOC has to go through, Kentucky will be able to resume wasting taxpayers money on executions that do not deter crime, cost more than life in prison without parole, risk killing innocent people, and do not bring closure to murder victims’ family members.

KCADP believes this means that Attorney General Jack Conway would request that Gov. Steve Beshear sign death warrants for at least three inmates.
