Colorado death penalty repeal killed in committee

The co-sponsors of a bill that would have repealed the death penalty in Colorado appeared upset yesterday when members of the House committee considering the measure failed to pass it. After Gov. John Hickenlooper expressed doubt about the bill at a caucus luncheon last week, hinting that he may veto it, two Democrats on the committee changed their votes to defeat it.

Supreme Court considers DNA collection

Last week we discussed a proposed bill in Colorado that would greatly expand the scope of DNA collection in the state. Currently, DNA is only collected from those convicted or arrested on felony charges and it goes into the state's DNA database. But under a new proposed law, people convicted of misdemeanors would also have to provide DNA profiles for the database. This bill points to a larger debate surrounding DNA collection on a national scale.
