Governor O'Malley has made good on his 2013 promise and included $500,000 in new funding for services for surviving families of homicide victims in his 2014-2015 budget. On a parallel track, legislation (HB355) that codifies our state's ongoing commitment to survivors of homicide victims is moving in the General Assembly. Thank the Governor for putting the money in the budget! And urge your legislators to vote for HB 355 and to protect and pass the $500,000 in new funding for murder victims' families in this year's budget. Take BOTH actions by clicking here. Let's make this the legacy of death penalty repeal in Maryland! - Watch their stories.
