Current Bill Summary


SB 338 - Under current law, the Supreme Court accumulates records for review of all cases in which the death penalty has been imposed and all cases in which life imprisonment without probation and parole has been imposed after May 26, 1977 or an earlier date deemed appropriate by the court. This act limits this requirement to only those cases in which the death penalty has been imposed, but removes the time limitation so that all death penalty cases must be accumulated for review.
