Massachusetts Senate to Debate DNA Access Bill

July 28th, 2011

This afternoon the Massachusetts State Senate will consider Senate Bill 1987 allowing inmates access to DNA testing. The formal session starts at 1pm. Betty Anne Waters and NEIP Executive Director Gretchen Bennett will be recognized by Senator Cynthia Stone Creem from the floor of the senate for their work in support of DNA testing that could prove innocence. If the bill receives a favorable vote in the Senate, it will then be discussed in the House of Representatives at a later date.
