Statement from Speaker Jose Oliva on Death Penalty Court Decision

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida House Speaker Jose Oliva issued the following statement on Jan. 24, 2020:

“This week’s court decision on the death penalty, while reversing a prior decision, does not impact the 2017 statute we passed that requires unanimity of the jury for a death sentence. That statute remains on the books because the law can require more than the Constitutional floor.”
