We are pleased with the Courts decision to uphold the will of the voters.  Prop. 66 preserves the death penalty for the most heinous criminals by enacting critically needed reforms to the system.

The court recognized that Californians not only voted to keep the death penalty but also to reform the appellate court system and ensure the death penalty is carried out in a timely manner.

It is important to remember, at the same time voters passed Prop. 66, voters rejected a competing initiative that would have eliminated the death penalty and allowed criminals who kill cops or rape and murder children to live out their lives in prison.
