Governor Issues Capital Punishment Moratorium
Posted: February 11th, 2014 under Councilmember Burgess.
Governor Inslee today issued a moratorium on executions in Washington State while he serves as governor. He explained the reasons behind his decision in a statement to the media.
As I’ve written before on this blog, many of these same reasons have led me to oppose the death penalty. Bravo to the governor for his thoughtful review of this issue and his principled stand.
