House Judiciary Subcommittee hearing on death penalty

A helpful reader reminded me that tomorrow at 11:30 am the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security has this scheduled hearing on a bill titled the "Death Penalty Reform Act of 2006."  As of this writing, there is little information about this bill and tomorrow's hearing on the House Judiciary Committee website, and I can find little else about what might be in the works here.  In-the-know readers should use the comments or e-mail to report if something significant might be in the works here.

UPDATE: The House Judiciary Committee website now lists these witnesses for the hearing:

  • Margaret P. Griffey, Chief of the Capital Case Unit, Criminal Division, United States Department of Justice
  • Robert Steinbuch, Professor of Law, University of Arkansas
  • Kent Scheidegger, Legal Director and General Counsel, Criminal Justice Legal Foundation
  • David Bruck, Director, Virginia Capital Case Clearinghouse and Clinical Professor of Law, Washington & Lee School of Law
