UPDATE: House Bill 145 was voted on and did not pass. The ACLU of Wyoming supported House Bill 145 and is disappointed that it won’t move forward. Capital punishment is an intolerable denial of civil liberties and is inconsistent with the fundamental values of our democratic system. It is an unfair practice that does not enhance public safety or promote justice in Wyoming.

The ACLU of Wyoming with support of a broad base of statewide organizations and groups, support this bill.
