Governor Jeb Bush says he felt he had to place a moratorium on executions in Florida to safeguard the state’s death penalty process.
“The state of this law, which has broad support amongst the people of Florida, it is part of our law, has been undermined by judicial rulings over time that now make the implementation of the death penalty only happen in rare occurrences and that’s disappointing because I think the will of the people is being denied in that regard.”
The governor called for a halt to executions following the botched lethal injection procedure of death row inmate Angel Diaz last week. Bush has appointed a commission to review Florida’s lethal injection procedures. It has until March to complete its review.
