The State House of Representatives has passed HB125, the Extreme Crimes Protection Act, which will fail to protect Delaware from extreme crimes. All it does is revive the death penalty as a punishment for capital crimes in Delaware. Here is how the vote broke down. It will be an interesting vote in the Senate.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 11 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE EXTREME CRIMES PROTECTION ACT.
