Governor Comments on Kansas' Death Penalty Ruling
The following is a statement from Governor Kathleen Sebelius on Kansas' death penalty ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court:
"I'm pleased this issue is resolved, and the status of our death penalty is settled. Without this ruling, the decisions the juries made concerning the eight Kansas death-row inmates would be in jeopardy. I hope this will bring some closure to the families who have been waiting for this issue to be resolved."
