Click here to watch a video from MyFox Austin about the hearing in the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence on a bill to establish a two year moratorium on executions and to create a commission to study the death penalty, and another bill to abolish the death penalty, both filed by State Rep Harold Dutton. Clarence Brandley, an innocent person who spent ten years on death row in Texas for a crime he did not commit, testified to the committee. He is shown being interviewed by MyFoxAustin.
Texas Moratorium Network (TMN) is a non-profit organization with the primary goal of mobilizing statewide support for a moratorium on executions in Texas. Significant death penalty reform in Texas, including a moratorium on executions, is a viable goal if the public is educated on the death penalty system and is encouraged to contact their elected representatives to urge passage of moratorium legislation.
