House Bill 155, introduced by State Rep. Sean Lynn, the prime proponent of the repeal of the death penalty, is trying to check the possible restoration of the death penalty by the possible passage of HB125 by barring the state from executing convicted killers by lethal injection or hanging — effectively leaving the state without the means to carry out a death sentence. Rep. Lynn has said that he doesn’t expect this bill to pass, but he is introducing and sponsoring it to make a statement.
