LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE

Austin, TX--Life without parole is an issue of importance to all Texans. I am disappointed that we did not get enough support to hear Senate Bill 60 in the full Senate today, but that’s part of the legislative process.

I have not given up! I truly believe this is a measure that Texans want, and I’ll continue to work with my colleagues to get the necessary vote to pass this bill.

Forty-eight states offer life without parole, and so should Texas.

Our juries and courts deserve this third sentencing option in capital cases.
