Death Penalty Will Not Be Put to Referendum

June 2nd, 2013 by WCBC Radio

Marylanders will not see a referendum on the death penalty on the 2014 ballot. Supporters of the referendum did not obtain enough signatures for the referendum. MDPetitions.com collected 15,000 signatures on the death penalty repeal- 3,000 signatures short of the needed amount to continue the process. Earlier this year, the senate voted 27-20 on the bill to repeal the death penalty.
