Short description: 
DEATH PENALTY ABOLITION                                                    

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends various Acts to abolish the death penalty.  Provides  that      
   on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act no person may be      
   executed.   Requires resentencing of those already sentenced to death.      
   Repeals the Capital Crimes Litigation Act on July 1, 2002.   Effective      
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Corrections)                                   
          There will be no corrections population or fiscal impact on DOC      
          within 10 years of the date of enactment, as the primary impact      
          will be felt after that time. This legislation would extend the      
          typical death row inmate stay by an estimated 25.1 years.            
          CORRECTIONS NOTE (Dept. of Corrections)                              
          Same as DOC fiscal note.
