By Arielle Dreher – Jackson Free Press
JACKSON — Death by firing squad could become an option for administering the death penalty if Senate Bill 2237, which passed the Mississippi House of Representatives passed Friday and held on a motion to reconsider, becomes law.
#The bill’s primary intent is to protect the identities of the state’s execution team and lethal-injection chemical suppliers in the state of Mississippi. The bill would exempt the identities of not only the state executioner and his team but also local lethal injection drug suppliers and any witnesses to an execution from the Public Records Act.
