On Wednesday, California Governor Gavin Newsom will sign a controversial executive order. It will call for a moratorium on the death penalty in the Golden State, giving an instant reprieve to 737 people on death row in California. The state has the largest death row population in the nation. CNN adds, "The Democrat's order will immediately close the execution chamber at San Quentin State Prison and withdraw California's lethal injection protocol." It will not lead to the release of any prisoner that is currently on death row. Newsom has long opposed the death penalty and said that his move is in the best interest of the state. He explains that it "is inconsistent with our bedrock values and strikes at the very heart of what it means to be a Californian." According to CNN, in his Wednesday speech Newsom will highlight the cost of the detah penalty, number of innocent people that have received a death sentence and the racial disparities in sentencing. 6 in 10 prisoners on California's death row are people of color.
