Bill to Abolish Washington Death Penalty moves forward in Olympia

It’s been on state Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s wish list for years, but it’s looking more and more likely that a bill to abolish Washington state’s death penalty will finally cross the finish line.
The bill to abolish the death penalty has already passed the state Senate, and passed out of the House Public Safety Committee Monday. But the bill moves forward with pushback from freshman Republican Rep. Jenny Graham.
