On March 12, the House Judiciary Committee unanimously voted to send HCR 173 to the House floor for a vote. Please call 800-372-7181 now and leave a message asking your state representative to vote yes for HCR 173 when it is considered for passage.
This bill creates a task force to develop a plan to implement the reforms recommended by the American Bar Association Kentucky team of former KY Supreme Court Judges and other legal experts. Their report described multiple flaws in our system of sentencing persons to death.
In addition, ask the person taking messages to deliver the following message to House Leadership: “Please bring HCR 173 to the floor for a vote by the full House before March 16, that is, before the end of this week.”
