City of Los Angeles Takes A Stand on Death Penalty
Passes Resolutions Supporting Yes on Prop 62 and No on Prop 66

Los Angeles—The City Council recently approved two Cedillo-authored resolutions, one in support of Proposition 62 and another in opposition of Proposition 66. This week, Mayor Eric Garcetti signed both resolutions, officially making them part of the City’s State Legislative Program. Prop 62--the Justice Works Act 2016, would repeal the death penalty in the State of California, and replace it with a sentence life in prison without the possibility of parole. Prop 66--the Death Penalty Reform and Savings Act of 2016, would reform the death penalty process in order to expedite executions.
