CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Requires imposition of penalty of death when person has been found guilty of murder in the first degree, notwithstanding any other law. Reduces the minimum age for imposition of penalty of death from 18 years of age, at the time of commission of the crime, to 16 years of age. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Would result in additional costs, partially offset by savings, to state and local governments for trials, appeals, and imprisonment of persons sentenced to the death penalty. The net costs are unknown, but are probably major.
