LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Attorney General Dustin McDaniel says a revision of Arkansas' lethal injection law and measures to combat human trafficking are part of his legislative agenda for this year's session.
McDaniel on Monday outlined the bills that he plans to support in this year's session. McDaniel said he'll appear before a Senate panel Wednesday to testify in favor of legislation that will revise the lethal injection law that the state Supreme Court threw out last year.
McDaniel said he backs a bill filed Monday by Republican Sen. Bart Hester that calls for using one drug in lethal injections. McDaniel said his office drafted the bill in conjunction with the Department of Correction.
McDaniel also said his office planned to testify in favor of laws targeting human trafficking before a House committee Tuesday.
