Legislation - Veto Override Passed (House) (72-48) - (Key vote)

Title: Death Penalty Discrimination

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to override a veto of a bill that limits the use of statistical evidence to establish that racial discrimination was a significant factor in the decision to seek or impose the death penalty.

Highlights:
  • Specifies that the use of statistical evidence alone is insufficient to establish that race was a significant factor in seeking or imposing the death penalty (Sec. 3).
  • Limits statistical evidence to statistics derived from the county or prosecutorial district where the defendant was sentenced, whereas existing law authorizes the use of statistical evidence from the judicial division and the state in addition to the county and prosecutorial district (Sec. 3).
  • Limits the time from which evidence may be used to find that race was a significant factor in seeking or imposing the death penalty to 10 years before the offense was committed and 2 years after a sentence is imposed, whereas existing law does not provide a time limit (Sec. 3).
