(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington Governor Jay Inslee, who imposed a moratorium on the death penalty in 2014, now wants lawmakers to completely remove capital punishment from state law.  Inslee, along with Attorney General Bob Ferguson, former AG Rob McKenna, and lawmakers from both sides of the aisle, have announced legislation that would abolish capital punishment in Washington.  Inslee says even if the legislation doesn't pass, the moratorium he imposed on all executions will remain in place as long as he's governor.  Senate Law and Justice Committee chairman Mike Padden of Spokane Valley says if the bill passes the House, he'll hold a hearing on it in the Senate.
