The Connecticut House of Representatives will be voting on the high-profile death penalty repeal bill Wednesday, a week after the bill passed in the state's Senate.
Doug Whiting, spokesman for House Speaker Rep. Christopher Donovan of Meriden, told the Associated Press Tuesday that the House will take up the bill mid-afternoon Wednesday.
The proposed bill would abolish the death penalty for all future cases, but would not directly affect the sentences of current 11 inmates on Connecticut's death row.
The state Senate approved a repeal bill after nearly 11 hours of debate last week.
If passed in the House, the bill would go to Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who has said he would sign it into law.

Jennifer, Michaela and Hayley Petit dead less than five years, and already these morons assert that no crime is ghastly enough to merit the forfeiture of the criminal’s life.
The latest “kill at will” state.
But at least the legislators can feel good about themselves.
The democrat senate leaders last week actually hid out from Dr. Petitte( the father and husband of the family tortured, raped and murdered by the two animals who staged the home invasion two years ago) and ordered the Capitol police to remove him. They wouldn’t even meet with the sole survivor of one of the worst crimes in state history.
So these Democrats want to save piece of crap murderers from justice, but will not save innocent babies from the murder of abortion.They are evil hypocrites.
Never heard that. I guess the MSM decided to ignored that little fact.
