Referred to Committee on JUDICIARY
 
Introduced by:

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:

Note: This bill seemed to die quietly in the state legislation, but do readers out there feel that Connecticut should return to the usage of  Capital Punishment?
