HB-6578

AN ACT CONCERNING THE PENALTY FOR A CAPITAL FELONY.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 7170

File Copy No.: 726

House Calendar No.: 479

OFA Fiscal Note

SEE BELOW

The amendment strikes the language of the bill and eliminates the associated fiscal impact. Instead, the amendment makes procedural changes that could result in significant (i.e., greater than $100, 000) net state savings to the extent that it limits the number of post-sentencing applications challenging conviction and sentence to death, and accelerates imposition of the death penalty.
