MD Senator Thinks Death Penalty Repeal Will Pass

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller says he thinks a repeal of the death penalty will pass in Maryland.
    
Miller, who supports capital punishment, said Wednesday on WEAA-FM that he will find a way to get the bill to the full Senate, if Gov. Martin O'Malley gets enough votes for it.
    
O'Malley said Tuesday he believes he is within two votes in the Senate of banning it, and he expressed confidence that finding the other two votes was very possible.
    
Miller, speaking Wednesday on the first day of session, says he believes repeal will pass the Senate and the House of Delegates. He also said he believes death penalty supporters will petition a repeal bill to the voters to decide in a statewide vote.
