Montana Senate votes to repeal the death penalty

This afternoon Montana Senate passed a bill to repeal the death penalty by a vote of 27-23.
Congratulations to the Montana Abolition Coalition.
Senate Bill 236 replaces Montana's death penalty with a sentence of life without parole. The bill will have a vote on third reading and final passage in the coming days. It will then be considered by the Montana House of Representatives.
