New privacy laws for MS executions, bill passed Senate

JACKSON, Miss.- The Senate passed a bill to keep details of state executions private. 

Lawmakers and the Attorney General do not think that the public should be allowed to know private details of an execution.

The bill was called the “Execution Secrecy Bill.” It will keep the identities of those selling the lethal injection drugs to prisons, as well as the officers who participate in the execution process a secret.

Those in opposition to the bill believe all of this information should be accessible to the public.

Legislators believe that this information, if it were public, could cause controversy and possibly endanger the lives of those involved in what is still a legal process, execution.
