Public Hearing on Executions
Frankfort, KY – Kentucky is set to hold its first public hearing this morning on the method used to execute condemned inmates. The 8:00am hearing is at the state's Transportation Cabinet offices in Frankfort. It comes a month after the Kentucky Supreme Court halted executions because the state skipped public hearings on the administrative regulations that make up the protocol. The state released the protocol publicly days after the ruling. Kentucky Justice Cabinet spokeswoman Jennifer Brislin said the state will consider all comments and issue a report detailing what changes it did or did not make and why by Feb. 15. Ultimately, Gov. Steve Beshear will have to sign off on the protocol before
executions may resume.
