Default Repeal of death penalty could save millions of dollars, analysis

SACRAMENTO (KABC) -- A nonpartisan analysis of a California ballot initiative to abolish the death penalty found that it could save the state and counties in the "high tens of millions of dollars" every year.

The Legislative Analyst's Office review of the proposed initiative, which hasn't been cleared for signature gathering yet, put it in the middle of a debate over what the death penalty costs and what should be done about it. Some critics of the death penalty think it actually costs much more than the analysis said, while supporters of capital punishment think executions should be streamlined, not stopped, in order to cut costs.

"But foes of capital punishment sense the tide may be turning as they prepare to begin gathering signatures on a proposed initiative that seeks to replace the death penalty with life in prison without the possibility of parole."
