SB 490 will put the question to the ballot.

Reverses Proposition 7.  Remember that one back in 1978, which pretty much reinstated the death penalty?  It’s author has made a complete 180.

The issue is the expense, which DP advocates argue is no problem – you just eliminate the appeals.

Anyway, given the law and order referendums which have passed even in lib-heavy elections – I’ll believe in the repeal when it happens.  But I’ll be happy just for the opportunity to cast a vote to flip the switch on the DP.

It won’t be a rational discussion.  Expect to see a lot of ads about murdered children, Charles Manson, etc.
