Current Bill Summary


SCR 27 - This resolution directs the Oversight Division of the Committee on Legislative Research to study the costs of administering the death penalty. The division is directed to compare the costs estimated by the division to be related to cases in which the death penalty is sought and is imposed to the costs for cases in which the death penalty is not sought and the defendant is sentenced to life without parole and cases in which the death penalty is sought, but not imposed.

This resolution is nearly identical to SCR 14 (2013).
