Supervisor Briggs speaks at Capital at 10am to Repeal the Death Penalty
Death penalty opponents, meanwhile, announce filing signatures aimed at qualifying a ballot measure to repeal the death penalty and establish life sentences without the possibility of parole.
Listed speakers include El Dorado County Supervisor Ron Briggs, whose father, former Sen. John Briggs, sponsored the 1978 ballot measure reinstating California's death penalty. The Bee's Carlos Alcalá talked to the younger Briggs earlier this week. The event starts at 10 a.m. in the Secretary of State Office's courtyard, 1500 11th St.
