Moratorium on the death penalty in California

Governor Gavin Newsom has issued executive orders that effectively place a moratorium on capital punishment in the state. All death row inmates will be granted a reprieve, and Newsom will annul California’s lethal injection protocol. California has over 700 inmates on death row, but hasn’t executed any of them for over a decade.
