This bill was passed May 16 and signed on May 18. This new law reduces the appeals time in capital cases by requiring convicted persons to file post-conviction claims at the same time as appeals. These cases deal with death row inmates facing lethal injection, so speeding up the process is likely to lead to wrongfully convicted individuals being executed before they can provide evidence of their innocence.
