OFA Fiscal Note
The amendment establishes the penalty of death or life imprisonment without the possibility of release for any person convicted of murdering a member of the armed forces when such member is on duty or going to or from duty. Expanding the penalty of death and life imprisonment without the possibility of release would result in significant state costs associated with litigation, incarceration and execution.
