The Virginia Senate and the Virginia House of Delegates have voted to send identical bills to Virginia Governor Ralph Northam for his signature. When the bill becomes law, it will end the use of the death penalty in the most-executing jurisdiction in the United States.

This is a thank you letter to bill patrons Senator Scott Surovell & Delegate Mike Mullin, as well as all of the Senators and Delegates who voted to pass the bills.

This is also a thank you letter to Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who indicated his support for the bill and his willingness to sign it. We are urging Governor Northam to sign the Virginia death penalty abolition bill as soon as possible, without amendments.
