SPRINGFIELD, IL-(Effingham Radio)- Illinois lawmakers are not saying when, or even if, they expect to vote to reinstate the death penalty.
But there is a plan they could vote on.
State Rep. Jerry Costello yesterday said his proposal would only deal with the death penalty, and not the gun control proposals that Governor Rauner also pitched.
Costello says he wants to be able to hold cop killers and mass murderers accountable.
