CT Senate passes repeal bill 20-16!

Early in the morning of April 5, the Connecticut Senate voted to pass SB 280, the bill to repeal the death penalty, by a margin of 20 to 16. Thank you to all our CNADP members, supporters, and family members of murder victims who stayed in the Senate Gallery until after 2am to show their support! It has been a long day/night/morning, but we are energized for the next step: On to the House!!
