Kansas Senate Passes Death Penalty Reform 27-13

The Kansas Senate has passed a bill to expedite the processing of capital cases.  The bill passed by a lopsided vote of 27 to 13.  The bill text is here, and an analysis is here. In a nutshell, the bill has time limits to speed up the direct appeal, and reforms to collateral review similar to those Congress enacted in AEDPA.  The bill is designated Senate Substitute for House Bill 2389.
