Conservative Legislators Split over Death Penalty

February 09, 2024

Discussion of Missouri’s capital punishment got an early start this session, as several republican legislators have filed bills calling for the controversial criminal sentencing act to be abolished. In collaboration with Missourians for the Abolition of the Death Penalty and the Missouri Catholic Conference, Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty (CCADP) held a press conference this week at the Missouri Capitol featuring several republican authors of anti-death penalty bills. Further information on the press conference can be found here courtesy of the Riverfront Times.
